My father in laws mom began rice cereal at two weeks for all her kids, also this is when she stopped breastmilk and started formula as per her drs orders. Apparently she was told breast,ilk was only good for two weeks.....
I started Eric on cereal at 6 months because my gerber info stuff all said that's when you should start solids.
He hated it, still had tongue thrust reflex and didn't really eat any of it til he was about 10 months!
Ok so since then I've found alot of info saying you should watch for readiness in the baby, not a specific age to start solids.

Tongue thrust reflex gon
When was your baby showing all the signs of readiness?(edited to add-And when did you actually begin solids?
Should you wait for all signs? Or should you go for it at x age even if the baby wasn't showing all signs of readiness?)
I assume that for most babies it's between 4-15 months or so, but this is a wide range that I've heard of from other moms.
Do you think it should be an arbitrary age? Or specific to each babies signs of readiness?
