I started introducing solids to my baby when she was 5.5 months old. According to her pediatrician, it is recommended to introduce solids at 6 months because they're digestive system is more mature at this stage, This will avoid babies having food allergies if you introduce solids at an early age.

Actually, formula has more calories and is more of a dense food than cereal. My pediatrician said it is like eating a potato compared to eating a salad. It might make you feel full right away but that cereal takes up tummy space and burns off quickly. I always started my kids on cereal etc at about 4 months.
