Mostly, because our pediatrician suggested it.

At the four month appointment, our doctor said that we could try to start giving our baby rice cereal and early fruits. We had reservations about rice as there was recently an article about arsenic amounts in baby cereals, and she said that she read the study and didn't find the amounts concerning enough to not recommend it. She liked exposing breast-fed babies to cereal early because most won't give up breastfeeding, and rice and early foods will just supplement and expose baby to a different diet.
