At what age do you start feeding your baby 3 solid meals a day?

I started with my oldest at 6 months and my youngest at 8 months. It's up to you and your baby.

 my son was about 8 or 9 months. my dd was about 11 months. i just kinda added some solids with their bottle feeding time...which was 4 times a day. 8, 12, 4, and 8. only time they didn't get solids was at 4pm, that was a "snack" bottle. when they were 1, they completely stopped the bottles and went to food. snack time was still there, only food instead of the bottle. now that they're older they get snack at 10am as well.

My oldest 3 were probably about 7-9 mo before they were eating 3 meals a day, every day.

My oldest was probably around 8-9 months.  My baby is almost 6 months and hasn't started solids yet.  It will depend on his readiness and how he does.  We're taking it slow so probably 8-9 months at the earliest.

Most people work their way up and it's usually around 8 or 9 months when it's 3 meals :)

Well, I definitely started my son late. Don't get me wrong, I did feed him Gerber about twice a day and sometimes some mushy fruits. BUT, before he was 12 months old, he was having a hard time with solid food. So when he was 12 months old, he took beautifully to solids and has been that since. He is 16 months old, and very healthy. :)

My kids don't do solids until after 9 months so by the time they have 3 meals a day... they are closer to 15 months or so!
