What solid food to start on

Hi Doc

I want to know what solid food should I start with? My baby is now 5 months and I want to start giving solids next month. He is on NAN Pelargon. He drinks between 800 - 900ml of milk a day. He sleeps through the night but lately wakes up from 4 in the morning. Sometimes I can settle him with his dummy. And other times I give him a feed to get him back to sleep.
He has a bit of reflux.
I was thinking of starting with vegetables and not cereal. Something that is easy to digest. What is your opinion?

Thanks

You can start with a rice cereal which is easy to digest. Then introduce vegetables and apple and pear as well.
