This depends on your bay and how interested he is in solids. start off with cereals such as a rice or maize cereal. when he is eating his solids well and usually from about 6 months on you can start with mashed vegetables such as pumpkin, butternut and sweet potato.Look at: www.babynet.co. za for more information.
