Babies can start eating baby food around 6 months. Every baby is different. I would not start baby food before 4 months. E didn't really want anything until 8 months.

These are the things you need to look for:

Your baby needs to have good head control.

Be able to sit well with support.

Doubled their birth weight

Growing appetite

Curiosity about your food

They also need to stop trying to push the food out with their tongue.
