I formula fed and all 4 kids ate real food under a year. They had tastes of stuff really early, but I didn't start actually feeding them a lot of anything until maybe 8 months or so.

Baby 1 - BF til 6m, formula til 1yr. Cereal really early and baby food at 5m.

Baby 2 - BF til 9m, formula til 1yr. No cereal, but baby food at 4m.

Baby 3 - Still BFing at almost 2, no cereal or baby food, 'people food' started at 6m.

My oldest was fed baby foods from 6 to 11.5 months
My middle one started table food at 7 months and my youngest we tried table foods at 6 months but it didn't work out til he was almost 8 months (tummy issues from day 1)
All formula fed, my oldest got pumped breast milk the first 4 days they gave him anything.

I breastfed for almost 3 years.

I did want to wait on introducing solids until closer to a 1 year but I started around 8 months or just about. I was happy with that.
