8 month old dropping feeds too fast?

I've got a just turned 8 month old who I've done baby led weaning with from 6 months. He's taken to solids amazingly well and eats 3 big meals a day.

He was on 4 breastfeeds a day but in the last couple of days has shown very little interest in the middle two feeds. He does drink a lot morning and evening though.
It seems too early to be cutting out a significant amount of milk but since I'm doing BLW I'm not sure how to approach it. Should I cut back on quantity of solids I offer him at breakfast and lunch?

My day normally goes something like this:
7am big breastfeed
8.15 breakfast (porridge, pancakes or cereal with fruit)
11am breastfeed
12.00 lunch (protein, veg and carbs)
2.30 breastfeed
5.00 dinner
6.30 big breastfeed

I'd be interested to know too. My 8 month old has 3 good meals plus breastfeeding anything from 3-6x daily (usually 4). I thought milk still plays a big role at this age but cutting back food to have more milk does sound counterintuitive. My DD is healthy, pooing/weeing well and gaining weight so sure that is what is important!
