I think the kidneys will cope, but your child definitely does not need these amounts at night. One milk bottle should be more than enough and you can replace the rest with clear water if she is thirsty.

Hi,

It's hot and maybe she is thursty... have you tried juice or water?
Does she eat enough during the day?
Try to give her a cold drink like water.
