If your baby was full term you want to start around 6 mo with a breastfed baby according to latest research. If you wait too long there can be problems with the baby liking certain groups of foods and with food allergies. Solids are always for nutrition and not for experience. The experience myth was started by a baby food company and someone on cm keeps telling moms that despite the fact I've given her info & it makes no sense. Everything you give your baby should be for nutrition.

The latest research has shown that the only thing you need to wait until after 12 mo is cow's milk and honey. Babies can even have things like peanuts, soy, citrus, ect. any time after 6 mo. This info is from a study done reviewing all of the other studies on starting solids and the studies on food allergies. You should be able to find more about it from google or on the American Academy of Pediatrics website.
