In brief: No magic age
I generally recommend beginning foods at 4 months.
Some doctors recommend six months or later. Some parents begin earlier than 4 months without ill effects, and some hold off and breast feed for an entire year (which is pretty remarkable). You should ask your pediatrician his/her opinion.
