My ped told us to start cereal first because it's fortified with iron. She said babies are born with the iron they need for about the first six months and after that need to get it from their food (if they are breast fed). We still haven't started solids (ds is 5 months). She recommended cereal and veggies or fruit to start at 6 months.
