Never. It is not very nutritious, and will interfere with the absorption of nutrients from breastmilk or formula. Ideally, solids are fed when baby can sit unsupported, has lost the tongue-thrust reflex has pincer grasp with his fingers and can put pieces of soft, cut-up food in his own mouth. Avocado, banana and shredded cooked chicken ate ideal first foods. Google baby led solids

Ditto!
My lil'est one loved avocado and banana. I did use oatmeal cereal though.

4 months is what I heard.  My kids never really liked the cereal though.
