And I disagree w/ you... and now Sarah has two opposite viewpoints to consider. Perhaps she can also do her own research... and will find that general, medical consensus is no solids under 4 months and it is typically better to wait til 6 months. There is also conflicting research on the 'benefits' of baby cereal. ;)

Never. Baby cereal is a completely unnecessary filler that takes away from the nutrients they need in the formula. It is better to start (6 months or later) w/ fruits and veggies and such.

I started early with my three children. They were all around three months. I'd start off with rice first because its lighter than the oatmeal. You can start with a half of a scoop of rice the up it to a scoop.
