Right now formula should be the main source of nutrition, with most sources recommending that they get at least 24-32oz. per day. Solids should just be extra, in addition to baby's regular formula intake.
For many babies, it can work well to offer solids after a bottle or between bottle feedings. As long as she's drinking enough formula, just let your baby eat as much or as little solids as she would like. Right now it isn't necessary for her to have 3 meals of solids per day, offering her solids once or twice a day would be plenty. Also, I'd hold off on the juice until she's a little older. They don't need it anyway. When you do give it to her, offer no more than 4oz. of juice per day from a sippy cup.
