Baby led weaning, still on the boob.

LO has just turned 10 months and I had him weighed yesterday as last week he bit his tongue quite badly (and had a fever and 3 new teeth! Fun fun fun!) so has been off his food. As expected his weight has dropped a bit, but he is just under 50th centile and perfectly healthy.
The HV I spoke to said I should only really be BF four times in 24 hours at this stage and should aim not to BF during the day by the time he's a year old.
LO still BFs every couple of hours and I have been doing BLW since he was 5 1/2 months old with varying success. Some weeks he loves solids and eats everything I give him but he hardly eats anything at the moment and I don't really want to cut down his breast milk if he's not ready. I was hoping he would've taken to solids more by now but am not in any rush really.
If I cut down on BF will he eat more solids?
Would be good to hear from others that have done BLW and how long it took.
