What solid foods to start for a 6 month old? Will he nurse less frequently?

At our 4 month appt yesterday, our pediatrician said to add solid foods at the 6 month mark because baby's ability to absorb iron from breast milk greatly declines. Suggested rice cereal to start. 1) what foods have others started with? 2) will he nurse less often because he's eating solids? I want to breastfeeding until at least 12 months old. He EBF today.
