i think u have to start give the baby food when he-she is ready. i gave my son rise cerial when he was about 2 months. lie 2 spoons per day. since 4 months old he is eating all 1st stage fruits and veggies. i even tried to give him meat (aslo found 1st stage) but he is not ready and didnt like it.
i suggest to give first rise cerial (no allergies at all), then u can try oatmeal cereal, and at like 4 months u can start give veggies first and then only fruits (cause if u gonna give fruits first, they not gonna like veggiesm cause fruits are sweet)

We are following our pediatrician's suggestions. We started rice cereal for breakfast and dinner when she was 4 months old. Now, at 5 months, we've added a vegetable or fruit at lunchtime. Her first vegetable was squash, and she loved it!!!

Started rice cereal at 17 weeks and oatmeal at 19 weeks the started mixing the two to give him a variety in taste , I plan to start him on yellow veggies at 21 weeks. He salivates and screams when we eat and I have to apologise to him now he won't let me eat without sitting on my lap and attempting to grab the plate, lol

We were going to wait until 6 months, as breastmilk is keeping her fat and happy but she's taken to staring at us when we eat and lunging with her whole body if we are holding her and trying to eat. She literally did a face plant on a piece of pizza in my husband's hand a few days ago. So we are trying her on avocado this weekend.

My baby had a couple of "tastes" from her father (even though I told him no:)) and yesterday she turned 5 months and we started with mashed banana. She loves it!!!!! She definitely lunges for the spoon and it was fun to watch her try to feed herself already. They grow too fast.....

I started with both my girls at 4 months. It took 2 weeks before she was actually eating the food though. They say you're supposed to try it, but if your baby doesn't swallow it and instead pushes the food back out of her mouth, then wait a week and try it again.
