Hey. My baby boy is 4 months and I just started giving him cereal this week. So far, so good :). I asked his pediatrician last month and he said I could mix one scoop w/ his formula.

Anywhere between 4 and 6 months but it depends on your baby's weight and nutritional needs. My pediatrician told me at 4 months to start my son on rice cereal. Rice cereal is the easiest to digest.

They say 6 but I started at 5 and a half and as long as there is no constipation, vomiting, upset stomach or sleeplessness for your baby, then her digestive system is ready. If she has any of this or any other negative changes, then stop giving it to her and wait a bit longer. Try to hold of to as close to 6 months as you can get for the sake of her tummy.

they say you should wait until they are 6 months & then start 1 at a time leaving a few days between each new one in case they have an allergic reaction.
