here's what i did so i hope this helps.
First 7 days feed only rice cereal (particularly since he isn't 6 months yet, ie. i wouldn't be adding fruit to it at this stage as shellytwins above recommended). I bought the Heinz rice cereal (blue / white pack) adn just follow the amounts as listed on the side of the pack. Thats it, nothing else, unless you want to give your little one 1 -2 tabs of it at night towards the end of the week.
In the second week i'd introduce veges. I started with some pureed potato (i chop 2 small potatoes and microwave wiht a couple of tabs of water for 2 minutes, checkto see if they're really soft, if not, another minute or so but make sure there's some water in there, then puree in a blender). Cool and serve 1 or 2 tabs for dinner (no lunch yet). Freeze all pureed veges in icecubes (about 1 tab per cube) Keep feeding the rice cereal in teh morning.
After 2 days of potato, try pumpkin, then sweet potato, then broccoli (although Olivia hated broccoli on it own), carrot and cook them the same way as above. If your baby is happy iwth the individual tastes, begin combining them, eg defrost a potato cube and a pumpkin cube and swirl together.
Towards the end of the second week add pureed fruit to the morning rice cereal. I found peeled, cored, chopped pear, or apple were great (micorwave for 2 minutes and blend) then add 1 -2 tabs to the cereal. I also found that Olivia LOVED pureed apricot (100g dried apricots in a saucepan with 1.5 cups of water, simmered for 20minutes, then blend).
In the third week i introduced lunch, which was 1-2 tabs of yoghurt with some fruit puree. Also try 1 -2 tabs of full fat ricotta, smoothed down with a tab or so of water (swirl iwth a fork) then add some fruit puree.
When you finish your rice cereal packet, start offering 1/2, then 1/3, then 3/4 of aweetbix with a few tabs of water to soften then add some pureed fruit.
Then start on fish / meat / chicken when she's 6 months. If you'd like more advice on that let me know
