I don't have any experience with it but when you start weaning you can start with most foods, it doesn't have to be rice. Things like avocado and pear are great. If you do go with the rice then it's six months and mix it with milk like the others said
BLW is a great alternative to regular spoon feeding. I spoonfed my LO starting from 6 months onwards and it was such a hassle, we did baby led weaning and it's amazing. You can google it and you'll find loads of positive stories about it.
I started giving myles baby rice at 6 months he loves it (especially the banana flavor.) That and actually bananas are the only thing he likes but he has tried sweet potato (didnt mind that) peas (hated) and string beans(hated) Apple(made a sour face n didnt like it haha)
Yeah, it really is best to wait until 6 months. We did BLW with Evelyn and we'd make baby friendly food and she'd have a bit of whatever we ate. Yes, it was messy but that's part of the fun. There are lots of reasons to promote BLW but one of them is that you don't have to deal with their gag reflex moving backwards at around ten months. Evelyn was confident with most solid foods by then so it didn't matter.
