Orange or orange juice should be started from 9-10 months of age. The first fruits to start with are apple puree, pear puree, mashed banana, papaya mashed etc, Once baby is used to taking these fruits then gradually you can introduce orange also, But always follow 3-day rule, start with single food, wait for 3 days to check for baby's tolerance, if all fine then gradually introduce baby to another food.
