Confused and wants to know if I'm doing it right

Ok so I don't know why but I'm confused about the feeding now that we are feeding my 6 month old solids three times a day here is what I do let me know what you think. I feed her solids for breakfast and about a 5 ounce bottle of formula thats any time between 7-730 after that if she is ready for a bottle around 10-1030 I give her a 6 ounce bottle of formula sometimes its after 11 when she gets that. Then I give her solid for lunch around 1230. When she is hungry for after that I give her a bottle around 3-330 sometimes around 230 if she is wanting it. Then if she wants a bottle before dinner time I do so but if not I wait and feed her solids around 6-630 and about a 4 ounce bottle because around 8 she gets a 6-7 ounce bottle depending on how she is doing before bed then she goes to sleep. Does that seem right? I keep thinking she should get her solids around breakfast, lunch, and dinner times so she gets use to it.
