My pediatrician said at 6 months.  NOT in the bottle, they can aspirate it and get pneumonia.  From a spoon.

I know in Europe it is given earlier so it depends where you live here in the US we do say 6 months or near it, as their digestion is still delicate ,why do you want to give it them so early ?.
