when can we introduce external foods to infants

My grand child is of 4 months. I wanted to know when we can start feeding her external liquids/food?

The earliest is four months, but later is better. The latest recommendation is 6 months or later.

6 months is the recommendation. I started my daughter at 5.5 months, she could sit up by herself, had lost the tongue thrust thing they do, showed an interest in food and also started waking up at night when she had previously slept through. All of which are signs they are ready for food
