LO not drinking much

My 6mth old has just begun consuming solid, mainly homemade purée for at most twice a day. I usually give it to her after milk feed. I realised there was a tremendous decline in her milk intake (via bottle). She will refused milk from bottle but she will be okay with direct nursing. In total, she can nurse approx. 2 hours in a day and drink only 200ml or less of FM. I do not want to force her to drink more milk as I tried & she will puke. Last check she is at 8kg @ 6mth & 3 weeks. Should I be worry?
