Answer:
you should wait till the baby is 6 months old. This is because any other food would not provide the nutrients, which milk does. Moreover the digestive system is still developing and may not have enough enzymes to digest other foods properly. Orange juice/any citrus juice should be given around 10-12 months, as they may give allergy to the child.
