When she was around 10 months old. Babies are born with a gut full of little perforations. When babies are introduced to NOTHING but breastmilk for AT LEAST the first 6 months, they are said to have a "virgin gut" Baby gets all s/he needs from mamas milk for the first 12 months and needs nothing else, maybe even longer if they really aren't into solids. HERE is an article on virgin guts and why formula and solids before AT LEAST 6 months are harmful.

Baby cereal is pretty much a joke anyway. HERE is another article on the unimportance of baby cereal.
“The best sources of iron rich food are either iron fortified cereal, or pureed meats. Meats are actually the preferred source for breastfed infants, because meat contains iron and zinc in absorbable forms. While most parents start their babies on cereal first, pureed meats are also recommended by the CDC to prevent iron deficiency anemia,” Swinney said.

I started my son on rice cereal at 4 months. BUT, that was in 1996 and I was young and dumb. My kids now will follow a Baby led weaning approach. No foods until they can sit unassisted and can pick up the food and feed themselves.
