Food help!

Hey everyone! My daughter just turned 8 months. (She was born at the end of September) I went to her doctor's appointment yesterday and they said to start weaning her off of bottles and that she should only be having like 18 oz. a day and to give her more solid food. I had no clue I was already supposed to do this. (She's been having like 30 oz. a day probably, maybe 25.) She doesn't like the purees and we have been giving her solids which she LOVES. We mostly just whatever we are eating, but I don't usually eat all 3 meals so I am looking for things that I can give her for them. I'm wondering now what sort of food schedule and what sort of things that I should give her to make up for the bottles.

TLDR: So, what I am asking is, what is your child's food schedule, and what are they eating for meals? (It'd be even more of a plus if it's easy to make!)

Edit: Also, do you give your kids juice? I haven't really given her it but I've heard mixed things. If you do, what type?

Tiberius has around 24oz of formula a day, 2 snacks and 2 meals. Usually oatmeal with some fruit and for dinner he has a meat and mixed veggie (I make his food...he doesn't like baby jar food). He has been using his sippy cup since he was 6 months, but usually has water or sometimes a treat I put 4oz of water and 1 oz apple juice.

In the end it's up to you what you want to do with your own child and I think 8 months is a bit young to be weaning off of the main food source which is either breast milk or formula.

By the way we do baby led weaning and some puree too (chunky though, he doesn't like it sloppy). Tiber is nearly coming up to 9 months and he is 17.6 pounds. He has always been a tiny eater (drinks around 3oz/4oz in bottles) and rarely finishes them.

Go with your gut, you know your child better than anyone else.
