Dropping bottle

My 9 month old routine is
7am - 7oz milk
830 - brekkie
1130 - milk but starting to refuse this / 2 oz
1230 lunch
130 nap
330 - milk
430/5 tea
630 - 6oz
7pm bed

I’m thinking of dropping 1130 milk. Is it best to replace this with snack? And keep lunch the same?

or should I move brekkie later and lunch to 12? So no snack? Just wondering if she will last till 330 with lunch being earlier?

Just wondering if you made any changes over the week and how they've gone?

Mine are past the weaning stage now but if she's grumpy at dropping the 3pm one, could you offer a small snack and a cup of formula?

At that age, I dropped the 11am bottle and moved the 3pm before to before her 2nd nap so I done:

7: milk
8: breakfast
9:30-11: nap 1
11:30: lunch
1:30: milk
2-3:30: nap 2 (snack when wake)
4:30/5: dinner
then milk before bed.

@ForeverTired89 that looks like it would work. My times are similar to yours.
can I ask the 230 snack what size/how much? I’m conscious I don’t want to fill her up before dinner! But then don’t want her starving! I’m thinking half a banna / or a few grapes / half slice of toast with nut butter? Or are these tiny portions?
