6 months: Six months is the usual age to start babies on solid foods. In nature, babies are just breastfeeding until about 6 months. We try to imitate nature, and that works very well. For parents who are not patient enough to wait until 6 months, and have a normal full-term baby, they can try feeding a little baby cereal at 5 months. That said, patience is a virtue... one that will imprint onto children.
