Solids at 6+ months... depending on when your child is ready. Water in small amounts (maybe an ounce or two a day at the absolute most) after your baby is on solids is 'typically' not harmful.
A breastfed on demand baby does not NEED any water under a year. I believe it is a little different for a formula fed baby, but I do know that no water is needed under 6 months and water has the potential to cause great harm to an infant. So once you DO start offering it... it's really just for sippy cup practice and not for the actual water. My son didn't have any water under 7 months and I don't think it was even a weekly thing.

Solids are not offered until 6 months or later. Baby should be able to sit up unassisted, hold head up, rooting for food or reaching for food (showing interest). No water. Water is not needed. Breast milk, or formula should be the main source of nutrition, even after starting solids. Solids at that age are strictly for practice.
