In brief: Bedtime feeding

Many infants have a bedtime feeding as part of their bedtime routine.
There is no "right time" to stop this feeding. Make sure that the baby is aware when you put him or her down after the feeding, and is able to sooth himself to sleep. Never leave a bottle in bed with the baby, this will cause serious tooth decay.
