When does everyone suggest starting cereal? And which brand is the best?

Took my EBF 4 mo old to his check up (all is well) and the ped said I could start him on cereal...I'd like to wait, he seems awfully young for this. When does everyone suggest starting? Waiting until 6 months or later? Shouldn't he be able to sit up by himself first also? And when I do begin cereal, what brands/types are best?
