With my first it was right around 6 months. I remember going out to dinner w/ dh and ds for fathers day and ds kept grabbing at our plates, crying for our food, etc. A few days later I gave him rice cereal, a few weeks later pureed yams...
Now with my second baby, who has always been a big baby w/ a hearty appetite (born weighing over 11 lbs), it was just before he turned 5 months... he was already pretty much able to sit up, and he would grab at our food and make hand to mouth gestures... then he'd cry, and get frantic every time we ate, even if he'd just nursed... so I started him on mashed avocado. He loved it!! Around 5.5 months I gave him some rice cereal. He likes it okay. He doesn't cry or get frantic when we eat now... and he seems more satisfied.
I'm going to introduce applesauce next week. I believe in waiting at least 3 weeks between each new food.
