Okay so my head hurts from reading countless amount of articles about first foods. Most of them say don't feed your baby grains cereal until 13+months because they basically can't really digest it yet. But I know the baby needs iron from food supplements or other supplements and iron fortified cereal have this . What other baby food can I feed my baby that will give her the right amount of iron ?

Until 12 months, solid food is just for taste and texture, NOT nutrition.
Start off with mashed potatoe, carrots and anything else along those lines. Avocado is good as well.
It's best to start with savoury foods as when you give them the sweet ones (like fruit) they don't usually like the savoury ones much anymore.
You still need to be giving the same amount of milk so you don't have to worry about iron levels.
