Thanks for your question! There are many factors that can influence a childs appetite. In this case it is a bit of a catch-22 because the milk at night is filling her up, probably causing her to not want to eat during the day (but I understand that you are worried about her intake hence the bottles). Try to feed her more during the day and less during the night and also try let her eat with you at the table (so she can mimic you)? Please go visit a dietitian with a special interest in infant feeding (www.adsa.org.za) to assess her weight and intake as well as if there is a need to refer to an OT (in case of sensory problems).
