Is there something wrong here??

Every so often we take a step back, that happens when you've got a new baby in the house.

The work is moving forward and lives all over the World are being inspired and changed through The Book of Mormon. Click here to see it.

Infant sleeping advice...I need some.

I will say for the most part Sophie is a happy girl. We went to the doctors last week and she's weighing in at 17 pounds 12 ounces. So she's a BIG girl.
The last 3-4 weeks she's been getting up in the middle of the night 2 times approx., crying out and I rush to her (I shouldn't) I shove a bottle in her mouth, she drinks zero milk and falls right back to sleep. What's the problem here?
Her schedule is pretty much the following: her wake time is approx 2 to 2 1/2 hours and then she'll take 2 long naps, approx 1.5 hours to 2 hours long (one in the morning and one in the afternoon) in the evening it's about a 45 min. nap and bedtime is 8:30. She has a bottle with 4-5 oz. of formula every 4 to 4.5 hours and eats sweet potatoes (2.5 oz.) 2X a day, once in the morning and once for dinner. At her 8:30 (bed time) feeding she gulps down 3 oz. of rice cereal mixed with 9 ounces of formula in a bottle and she's asleep.
We are exhausted and feeling like we're out of options. Anyone...HELP...PLEASE?
