Answer: Hello dear u can start giving cerelac to ur baby after 6 months. you should introduce your baby with Semi-solids in the initial few weeks. Once baby gets comfortable with that, then you can start to feed Cerelac to your baby. Homemade things are always better. So, if u can make cerelac at home then it would be far better for ur baby as it would be hygienic enough. But if u dont know how to make cerelac than u can opt for nestle cerelac also as it is also very healthy and contains all essential nutrients.
