This is common with babies of this age. Your baby's main source of nutrition at her age is still her milk.Her weight is excellent so there is no need for concern. It may help to give her a few days break from offering her any solids and then start all over again with a rice or maize cereal and then apple or pear. Babies all love pumpkin and butternut so give her this next. Slowly introduce new foods one at a time and give her a chance to decide which of the foods she likes.
