A 31-year-old female asked about a male:

How much cereal does a 5 months old baby have to eat a day ?

None: A baby may start solid foods at age 6 months. There is usually no need to start sooner, but if parents want to try baby cereal sooner, it would be just for fun... meaning 0.5 ounce to 1 ounce, 1-3 times a day. Breastmilk (or formula) provides all the nutrition a baby needs, as he starts on solids, because he eats just a little bit of solids at first.
