I would think at 10 months she would still be getting a bottle of formula with each meal.

she gets the formula in with her cereals, but she only gets them because that is all she wants, she has been slowly refusing to drink as much formula since she was 6 or 7 months old

At 10 months formula should still be the bulk of her diet, eaten before any solid foods.  Solid food should only be for practice right now.

she's happy, healthy, and is not behold in any developments at all, I called her doctor and asked him and he said she was find...She was getting 3 7-8 oz bottles and spoon feed twice a day, but since i started giving her cereal in the mornings, her bottles when down to 4-5 oz.  I do ofter her 6 oz but she never wants the 6 oz she will only drink 4-5 oz even though she gets it before the cereal.  I use the last oz or 2 that she didn't eat to make her cereal from it.

I would speak to a nutritionist. Doctors are not trained in infant nutrition and at this age bsbies need a certain amount of fat, calories, vitamins, and liquid to develop their brains, muscles and bones. Formula is where babies get the most of this. Baby foods do not have the fat or calorie content that a baby needs to develop. If you thought she was fine you would not have posted this.
