  • Between 4-6 months (6 is better). But they don't need cereal... I don't plan on giving my baby cereal at all. We will start with avocado.

  • when they show an interest first of all and if they sit supported and if they have good head/ neck control. I never started out with cereal for either of my kids. started out with veggies. just watch for any allergic reactions to anything. give about 3 days between any new foods

  • My son started eating it after he was pretty good at eating cereal. This was around 3 months, little before.
