how much formula after starting solids

DS seems to be totally over his bottle and he's only 6 1/2 months old! We started solids around 5 1/2 months and he took to them well... a little too well actually. He doesn't have much interest in his bottle any more even when he hasn't had anything in hours (like first thing in the morning). I know he still needs the nutrition from formula and I'm wondering how much he should be getting in this transition into solid foods.

DS eats solids 3 times a day and sometimes does the same thing. He rather eat food than drink formula. But it's hit and miss so I don't worry too much. I'm gonna ask Ped on Friday just to be sure.

mine child is now 7 months and just started eating solid food more than eating, but was eating solid food here and there until before he turned 7 months. Sometimes I try to give him his bottle but he rather food and then juice after the meal. And really drinks his formula at night when he is a sleep.
