This is a common problem and children often derive security from their bottle. He does not need so much fluid. I would suggest to cut it down to one milk bottle at night and to offer only water at other times. You may then slowly replace the final night time bottle with water as well. It is expected that this may be associated with some tantrums, but giving in to his demands will only enforce the behaviour. It is important to remember that he is not naughty, you may provide some comfort, but it often best to leave him alone if you have ensured that there is no other reason for his crying. It usually takes a few days of consistent behaviour before this night time pattern will change.
