What I have been told is TBW repackages many of these same ideas in a more agreeable way that doesn't seem so legalistic. I do a dreamfeed because I BF and I need to do that to keep up supply. If I was FF, I would do just as you mention. I offered solids directly after nursing beginning with lunch and dinner meals too. Our babies all start nursing less (so maybe FF is the same?) around 9-10 months.
Be careful with BabyWise it tends to bring out the worst in some

Re: 7mo schedule?

There isn't anything wrong with a schedule. Some people tend to assume it means you are some cold detached parent who won't feed a hungry baby.

My DS went through a time of completely random eating. (posted somewhere here in FF) Lately, however, he seems to have spaced himself out. It is weird! (He did it with his naps too)

Wake 6am
7am 4 oz bottle
8am 1 jar of baby food
9am nap
noon 4 oz bottle
1pm nap
4pm 4 oz bottle
5pm 1 jar of baby food
7pm 8-10oz bottle
