At this age your son certainly does not need a bottle at night. So this is mainly due to a habit. With your son being 4 years old already you just need to tell him that he is a big boy now and big boys do not drink milk from bottles. Then just stop giving him the bottle. He may perform for a night or two but will soon stop provided that you do not give in.
