In brief: 6 months
Current recommendations by the american academy of pediatrics says that 6mos is the approproate age to start solids.
What we are are really concerned about is that solids may interfere with breast milk or formula, which at 4 mos provide a better balance of nutirients than solids ( we think). The question of of minimizing food allergy risk by waiting is unclear at present.Be patient.

In brief: Now.
If you haven't started your baby on baby foods (other than cereal), you can start now.
Start with pureed fruits and vegetables. Start one new food at a time for a few days to make sure your baby digests it well.  do not give foods that require chewing.  offer the baby formula, or breast-feed your baby after giving baby food at meals in case s/he is still hungry.
