We gave Nelia rice cereal for the first time on 12/4/09, so just a little over 5 months old. Originally I was going to wait until she was 6 months old, but she has seemed really interested in food lately. Needless to say, she LOVED it! She actually does a really great job using the spoon and although a lot of it ends up on her face and clothes, she does actually eat quite a bit of it.
Her first bite:)
