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.
