You should still be giving her breastmilk/formula for her main nutrition. Solid foods are just for taste and texture until after 12 months. You DON'T cut back on the milk just because you have introduced solids.
Was she small when born? She may just be a small baby. If your doctor isn't concerned then you shouldn't be either.

If she was small when born then she is probably just going to be a small child. Not everyone is the same build/weight/height, that's what makes us unique. As long as she is putting on weight (even if it's slowly) then she's fine.
