The recommendation by most pediatricians is between 4 to 6 months . I always started my babies on it around 4 months . I used the baby oatmeal or rice cereal mixed with formula and made it really soupy at first so they wouldn't choke . For regular oatmeal I would wait until they are a bit older and more used to eating and thicker textures .
