I started cereal at 4 months. Once they got down how to eat with the spoon I added vegetables. Then after I went through all the vegetables I started adding fruit. My first son, once I started the vegetables he didn't want the cereal at all anymore, not even mixed with vegetables. My second son won't eat the fruit and vegetables plain, I have to mix them. He didn't really care for rice cereal but he loves the oatmeal cereal. They are all different. I always did the same vegetable or fruit for at least two days to make sure there wasn't an allergic reaction. That way if there is you know what food may be causing it. I start juices (mixed with water in a sippy cup) around 8 months.
