Other nights she'll drink 12 oz overnight, and then go 4-5 hours in the daytime without eating. I've tried more frequent day feedings, but it doesn't seem to help.

I don't mind feeding her through the night if she's really hungry, and would still offer her formula at 12 and 4 (she's got an 8 bedtime), but I'm really not sure she's actually hungry at 12, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 anymore.

Is that reasonable?
Does she take a paci at all?

Comfort sucking is important definitely so that could be what is going on if she is not actually taking much food.
