my son was 2 and a half weeks when he started to get cereal in his bottle. in a 4 ounce bottle he would get 1/2 tsp of cereal. we started him on baby food when he was 3 months old. he does really well with it. you will know when to start it because your baby will seem like formula is not filling them up. if it seems like they can eat 6 to 8 ounce bottle every couple of hours its time to start baby food and/or cereal.

Most docs say at least 4 son had cereal in his bottle by 3 months and was on baby food by the end of his 3rd month. It all depends on the child.

any age at all. most people start at 6moths as that is the average age. my son started at 4months as the milk jst wasnt filling him. when your baby is ready you will know

babies dont need food until after one year as long as they are getting enough milk/formula. Most people start introducing foods around six months. One at a time, spaced out three days to check for allergies. I dont know about cereal in the bottle. I couldnt put cereal in my boob so i never did that.
