Problems with BMs

I have been feeding my now 5-month old breastfed baby Stage 1 veggies and fruits for the past month. 1 fruit or veggie for 4 days to test for allergies. Then I will move onto another fruit of veggie. I haven't been feeding her rice cereal because she doesn't like it.

She has been doing well with baby food but I've noticed that she hasn't had a bowel movement in about 7 days. When she was strictly breastfed, she would have a bowel movement every 3-4 days. She's pretty gassy and she has remnants of poop in her diaper but not a full fledged bowel movement yet.

I've also been supplementing her diet with formula, Dr's orders, when someone is babysitting her because I haven't had enough breastmilk to pump. So maybe that's got something to do with it also. Not sure because she'll only drink about 1/2 oz from a cup. I'm not sure what to do. Any advice would definitely be appreciated.
