My almost 5-month old son is starting solid foods. What is a good feeding schedule??

He is still drinking breastmilk and formula, but I want to know what is a good feeding schedule. How often should he eat? When should he have the baby food? I just want to get him on a schedule, but I want to know when to give him the solid food (obviously the formula is still his main source of food). Should he be eating 5-7 times a day and if so how do I space it out?

As I have just read your other post I would start with giving your son some baby cereal at night before his last bottle. This might be the reason he is waking early because he is hungry and going through the night on milk alone is not enough. Start with night feeds and then advance onto breakfast and then lunch.
