My son is 7 months old. He was introduced to solids. But what should the ratio of feeding solids to feeding breast milk be?

In brief: 90 percent breast

Don't decrease the breast milk intake yet.
Some babies will start decreasing their breast milk intake gradually over the next few months. But the breast milk is still a really good food. Don't wean yet unless you have to for some reason.

In brief: Varies

Usually when babies start eating solids, the amount of milk they ingest decreases, let your baby lead the way.
You may want to nurse him sometimes after solid feeds, if he eats 3 solid meals a day he will still be nursing every couple of hours.
