Last night, she woke at 9pm something, I think because I disturbed her coming in as we still have to share the same room.  Then she woke at midnight something, but I tried teething gel and the soother as I thought it was too early to feed her really when I know she should go longer normally.  Then she woke at 4am something at which time I fed her.  She took the paci to get back to sleep.  Then woke at about 6am something.  She normally wakes between 5 and 6am something.  I forgot to answer your previous question of whether she wakes at a decent hour.  I don't think she does as it is normally 4/5am wake ups. 

Another thing I could do with an opinion on is that she seems to always completely drain a 260ml bottle of formula at bedtime.  She only has this one bottle a day and the rest is breast feed.  What should I do about her draining the bottle?  Could that be why she wakes frequently within two hours of bedtime?  What should I do?  Do you think I need to give her more bottle?  Or is 260ml kind of the max a baby should have anyway?  We can't fit anymore in the bottle.

I'd have to suggest posting on the bottle feed forum for that, I've no experience bottle feeding.
