I don't know about a strict schedule, bfing is usually an on demand thing. I believe it's best to have a feeding at least every 3-4 hrs and sometimes more often if baby is asking for it. Increasing the frequency of feedings naturally increases milk supply, and once milk supply is at the levels needed then baby usually goes back to having longer durations between feedings. That or they're like my kids and would nurse for 5-10 minutes every 1/2 hr, lol.

6am---boob then back to bed
9am---solid breakfast. Egg, steamed veg, berries, toast, maybe diced leftover meat. Sometimes top off with boob.
11am---boob
1pm---solid lunch. yogurt, cheese, veggies, goldfish/crackers, leftover meat
2:30pm---boob + nap
5:00pm---boob + a few crackers while i cooked dinner

My son LOVED boobie snacks. He was mostly scheduled (his own, i don't do strict schedules, but days fall into a pattern for me by nature) until about 15mo, then he got mobile (walked at 13mo, RAN soon after) and once he was really mobile and needed no help, he'd only do a drive by boobing and snacked continuously all day on boob.

At 1 year old from what I've read they eat normal, breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks as needed and just boob whenever they want.

This. You'll know when they want boob or real food.
