DD self-weaned off bedtime bottle?

My DD is 6 1/2 months old, and the last few days she drank half what she usually drinks of her bottle (3 oz instead of 6 oz) and tonight we had to fight with her to get 1 oz drank...
She eats 6 oz first thing in the morning, then 1 tbsp of cereal (w/ 2 tbsp water mixed) midmorning, then 6 oz formula at lunchtime, 6 oz again around 4-5pm, 1/3-1/2 jar of veggies or fruit around 6-6:30pm, and then usually has her last bottle around 7-8pm, then bed. She sleeps thru the night just fine.
This is my first baby Should I be pushing the issue of the bedtime bottle with her, or just offer it and let her push it away if she chooses?
I haven't had any weight gain problems with her at all, doc and immunization nurse are all happy with her progress.

Re: DD self-weaned off bedtime bottle?

it could just be phase. My son will not eat a certain bottle for a week at times and go back to eating, Just keep offering it to her for another week or so.
