Cereal: If your child is breast fed, we tend to wait till 6 months. If your child is feeding formula, we introduce cereal at 4 months, depending if he/she is waking up at night alot and require feeding more often

Solids ok at 4-6 mo: Most infants thrive on exclusively breast or formula feeding until at least 4 months, and many are very content until almost 6 months. At that time, it is a good idea to start with cereal, either rice or oatmeal that is iron fortified, in addition to the milk feedings. esp if your infant has been sleeping through the night and now is starting night wakings, a late afternoon supplement works well.
