If your baby looks like he is able to sit and have a few teaspoons of stage one baby food, then it may be time to try. I started my son on yellow veggies per the doctor's request. He loved squash and sweet potato. If you notice that your baby starts to gag and is having a very hard time moving the food from the front of the mouth to the back, then perhaps you should give him/her another week or two. My son made horrible faces at first, I have to admit the store bought baby food tastes pretty bad, but you must try and try again. They won't always like what you give them, but be peristant. This teaches them to like a variety of flavors.
