Baby keep me awake all night

My boy is now 28 months, and he still wakes uo every hour and second hour and wants his bottle of milk. Somet times he drinks 3-4 bottles a during the night. He doesn' t eat properly as well. I struggle to get him to eat. He dont get a bottle during the day he only gets one when he is taking his nap during the day. Further onn he drinks out of a cup. He will eat a little of porridge in the morning, and the during the day he just refuses to eat. I' m desperate on this stage I dont know what to do anymore.

This is not a simple problem. At this age your son should only be having 2 cups of milk per day. Your son is drinking too much milk and at the wrong times [at night] and is not eating at all well.He may be anaemic or have some other problem to explain his poor sleep pattern and appetite. Please ask your doctor to see him.
