Tortellini noodle, banana, raw baby spinach... that was at 5.5 months.  Now he's 6.5 months and eats just about everything.  Sometimes its a puree (if it weren't for WIC, we wouldn't do them but they're supplied to us), sometimes its what we're eating, and sometimes its a little baby-only meal I put together.  This morning he started eating Cheerios.

Cereals and single grains are the first solid foods I fed my baby.

Around 7 months of age he can have teething biscuits, and between 8 and 9 months of age he can try pasta, rice, bread and mixed grain cereals.

DD's first food was avocado slices at 7 months. She wasn't interested or showing enough readiness signs before then, so we just waited. We are doing BLW as well - she eats everything we offer her at this point (we just don't do grains or meats with her) but it took her a bit to warm up to food.

Our first food was rice cereal, then oatmeal. DD was not a fan. We introduced banana, then carrot, then sweet potato, then peas, then prunes... and it was all a blur of blenders and tupperware after that. She was 5 months old when we started.

DS2's first food will likely be some kind of meat because (according to my LLL leader and a dietician who's a member of our group), it's really important that babies get some good sources of iron.
After that, I find a blend of some spoonfeeding and letting the babe explore with family tablefoods and soft chunks of banana or avocado works well for us.

 

Depends on your baby and pediatrician. My ped tried to talk me into starting solids  at 4 months, and I completely vetoed it. At 5 months, she was interested in food and appeared to be hungry even after nursings.  We started with cereals, but DD was not impressed... until I mashed a banana into her oatmeal. She grabbed the spoon from my hand and tried to feed herself!
