My 7 month old won't take more than 20 oz of milk. Is this ok?

I'm a mom to a 10 year old, 2 year old and 7 month old. My kids have always been great eaters, however now that my baby has started solids she seems more interested in solids than on milk. She used to drink between 24 and 28 oz of breastmilk/formula but now I'm lucky if she gets 20. Doctor seems to think is ok but every where I read it states milk should be her primary source of food. She weighed at birth 7.7 and at 6 month check up she was16 lbs. should I cut down on solids and increase milk intake. She gets frustrated at the breast and bottle now and my supply has decreased to about 12 oz a day. Any way to increase it? I'm taking fenugreek

I, personally, would cut out the solids (or just a tiny bit once a day) and stick to just the breast for a while. That would, hopefully, increase her milk intake AND your supply.
