If you want to start with rice cereal, you can start any time after four months, if your LO is showing signs of being ready for solids (no tongue thrust reflex, able to sit up, interested in food). Some babies aren't ready until closer to six months, or beyond.
You can start by offering it once a day, after a milk feed.
We offered rice cereal mixed with EBM to start with, and then moved to soft veggies, fruit, toast etc. DS1 began at just over four months and DS2 was closer to five. We only went through one packet. DS2 still has baby cereal mixed with fruit puree and yoghurt for breakfast, he is 10 months old.
