ds is 9mths or rotine runs like this:
7-8am wake up and have breakfast. Usually weetbix/baby cereal/oats made with formula and fruit puree mixed in. Toast/muffin/raisin toast/crumpet. water to drink.
10am small nap then get dressed.
10.30 morning tea. Usually yoghurt and some cut up fruit he feeds himself. Water to drink.
We usually all go out now and come home for lunch.
12pm lunch. if not leftovers then it varies from pasta with tomato or cheese base sauce/vegie and lentil puree/wholemeal sandwitch with avo, cheese spread or vgemite and cheese. Then Fruit and custard afterwards. water to drink.
play, usually outside
1pm sleep for 2-3hrs
3.30-4pm arrowroot biscuit/plain cruskit/apple cinnamon pikelet/banana and saltana bread and a drink of water
play, watch playschool
5pm dinner is whatever we had the previous night. (last night was spag bol) ds feeds himself dinner. Fruit afterwards and a small serving of rice pudding (no sugar, bworn rice) i made with formula.
6pm get bath ready/top to toe wash/into pjs for both kids.
6.45pm 50-100mls formula in a sipper cup
7pm both kids bed for the night. they both sleep through.
i also have a toddler and ds eats what and when she does now. ds is keen to feed himself, its so easy thesedays.
on tuesdays we have playgroup at 9am so ds misses his morning nap and has a 12pm-3pm nap instead with lunch at 11.
on wednesdays dd goes to creche at 9.30am, so ds will have his morn nap on the run or in the stroller if i decide to go out srtaight from creche drop off.
Edit: ds weaned himself from bottles very early, is not interested in formula (never really was since 6mths old when i weaned him from the breast) so i get it into him however i can.

God my 8.5 month old is nothing like that!!!!! (Edit: just read your edit about not wanting formula no wonder its different lol) She's not a big eater and is breastfed too.
Day looks roughly like this
4-5ish if wakes breast feed back to sleep
Up at 6-645 (breastfeed now if slept through)
7 breakfast (1/3 jar baby porridge) and crust from my toast
730 breastfeed (if didn't have one at wake up )
10ish small snack of fruit in mesh feeder and very small drink water
12 lunch (a few tablespoons homemade veggie purée) and crust from my sandwich and small water
2ish small snack (jelly or custard or yogurt or fruit in feeder) with small amount water
Catnap (40 min)
5 dinner (few tablespoons fruit purée with cereal) and small water and maybe a taste of something soft from my dinner at 6 (ie hot chip or small bit of cheese)
Some days she eats really well other times she's not interested. Not bothered at this stage (food before 1 is just for fun). Looking to cut down to 3 breastfeeds by 12 months (morning noon and tea) hopefully!!! Trying to introduce meat but am struggling a bit, she sometimes has tiny amount puréed at lunch but usually rejects it even when mixed with veggies
Just Started blending up veggies and fruit so they are chunkier with soft lumps
Every baby is different though. And mine still naps 3 times a day and doesn't look like dropping to 2 any time soon, gets overtired easily. I love 3 naps a day lol!
Edit: fruit size is usually a couple of cm so not much at all, more a tool to keep her busy lol. I only started introducing snacks in past couple of weeks. 4-5 tablespoons at meal times is the MOST she will eat. Breakfast is usually the one she ignores, dinner the best. Water is very small a few sips, breast feed babies will not drink much.

My dd was exactly the same as my ds. I just don't make babies who like milk!

I have just gone back to work 2 days per week, I would love for her to be awake longer but she just doesn't cope.

6am wake, breastfeed
8am breakfast, often doesn't eat much at all - perhaps a few bits of cereal and a spoonful of weetbix
9am nap for 1-2 hours
12pm lunch - often finger food
1/2 nap for 1-2 hours
Afternoon tea when wakes (usually a homemade Savoury muffin)
6.30pm breastfeed then bed by around 7.30 (she's hard to get to sleep at night).
Most nights now she doesn't have a night feed.

I do this for my just 10 month old.
630 up bottle. If she wakes earlier I give her a toy in the cot or try to tuck her back in for more sleep.
800 breakfast (scrambled eggs, weetbix, porridge, yogurt or fruit puree something. She doesn't eat huge amounts)
1230 lunch (puree or fruit..cruskit with avo etc)
400/430 up play
500 dinner (puree or soft foods. Plus fruit or yogurt)
1030 dream feed.
She's also offered water throughout the day.
