We started towards the end of 5th month, when she has strong neck and head support and able to sit with support. We gave her cerealac rice cereal with milk to start off. Slowly, we introduced fruit/veg puree and then porridge.

When baby was 5 month plus. Started with two three spoon of soft steamed pumpkin, carrot and potato from ABC soup. Mashed it before feeding and add some soup to make it runny

Around 5.5 months. My baby shows interest on food when he see it. He can swallow the food and neck is also stable. Can seat well.

6 months coz baby can sit on his own and doesnt push food out with his tongue anymore
