advice please. 18 week old taking less milk

Hi. I started weaning Izzy at 17 weeks due to her reflux, she was also grabbing food off me and eating it etc. This is her average day.

9am she wakes
9.15 - 5oz
10.15 - half a pot of mixed fruit

12.45 ish - 4oz
1.45 - half a pouch ellas kitchen,
2.00 - couple of finger food to nibble

5.00 - 5 oz

5.45 - half a pouch
6.00 - maybe an ounce
6.30 bath
7.00 6oz
8.00 4ozs

She always fills up at a night time after her bath but she has gone from 5-6 five ounce bottles too two five ounce bottles and three three too four ounce bottles.
Is it normal for the amount to drop?

Her milk intake will inevitably drop once she starts taking solids.

As she is now on 3 meals a day aslong as she is taking about 21oz of formula aswell then she should be getting everything she needs. xxx
