Anytime you want that he seems to take to it. At 8 months, he 'should' be able to start with soft chunks of whatever... banana, avocado, sweet potato, etc.... He may or may not be ready at this age, but it's certainly a fine time to start trying.

I think you can start solids at 6 months. Food should be completely mushy though, since babies obviously can't chew, to avoid choking. My friend tried avocado blended with breast milk as her son's first solid food. He did very well with it... aside from the messes!
