Some babies still need a feeding or two in the middle of the night at this age.  To have dd go 8-9 hrs without a feed is great!  If you really want to try to get rid of the 4 am feeding, maybe you should try the df again.  Just make sure that it sometimes take about 1 or 2 week to see the result.  At the same time you are doing this, you need to ready to soothe her back to sleep by either doing pat/shh, paci or wake to sleep.   Keep us updated with your progress.  Good luck.

Also, you are very near the 3month growth spurt, where feeding and eating can go haywire for a few days.
