Since starting on solids DS (6.5mths) is drinking less formula, although is still feeding as frequently. Yesterday he had about 450ml of formula and 2 BFs. Should he be having vitamin drops?

My guess would be yes since he's having less than a pint of formula - I don't think the BM makes up the shortfall as the advice is to put BF babies on vitamin drops from 6 months/starting solids regardless of how much they take in. I'd check with your HV on that one though because none of the bits of paper I have mention mix-fed babies.
