baby is 6.5 months and a couple of weeks into weaning. He has taken well to solids and in the last couple of days have worked out a rough routine along the lines of:

7am - wake and breastfeed
8.30 - breakfast (baby porridge)
10am - breastfeed
12.30 - lunch (veg puree)
2pm - breastfeed
4.30 - dinner (more puree of some description)
6.45 - breastfeed
he's pretty much always fed once in the night (after an amazing 6 weeks at the start of no night feeds)
BUT...he's not always tanking up at the bedtime feed and has started waking earlier and more often at night as a result.
Any thoughts on how to make sure he fills up at this time?
Drop dinner? Less dinner? Any other tweaks?

My DDs sleep was very disrupted when we started weaning, nothing I did made a difference but it just sorted itself out after a few weeks. I think it's just their digestive system getting used to the solids and strange sensations etc waking them up! It didn't last long don't worry

I would move dinner later if possible. With my son I used to give him dinner then bath then bottle very close together. This help to fill him up for night time.
