Weaning/Switching to milk

So, Evan is just about 10 months, and is still on formula. He's not really weaning himself like I thought he would. From what I've read, as babies eat more solids, they will reduce the number of milk (formula or BM) feedings per day. But, that's not what he's doing. He eats solids four times a day and still has five bottles a day. But, he seems to need less formula in each bottle (he used to have 6oz every bottle, now he'll have anywhere from 4-6 depending on the time of day). As a note, he does eat and ingest a lot of solids, so that's not the issue.
Any other formula feeding mommy experience this? Did you actively wean your baby from the bottle, or just let it happen? If you just let it happen, how long did it take?
Also, and this can be for everyone, when did you start giving your child cow's milk?
Thanks so much for any ideas/suggestions!
