In brief: 4-6 months
Starting complementary solid foods is as much a psychological/emotional decision as it is medical.
Research on food allergies shows that starting somewhere between 4-6 months may be optimal. Equally important is what you feed - start with fresh organic fruits and vegetables if you can.

Current recommendations are to start your baby on solid foods, rice cereal being a good first choice, at any age after approximately 4 months but no later than 6 months.
