When can I start feeding my baby?

Breast milk or formula is the only food your newborn needs, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends exclusive breast-feeding for the first six months after birth. But by ages 4 months to 6 months, most babies are ready to begin eating solid foods as a complement to breast-feeding or formula-feeding.

Rice cereal isn't necessarily the best choice for a young infant because it has fewer nutrients than other healthy first foods, including pureed meats and vegetables or iron-fortified cereals made from other grains. Skip rice cereal and feed your baby iron-fortified cereals made from other grains, such as oats.
