Milk is the most important source of nutrition for babies of this age, not solids.Your baby was drinking her formula well until she was started on solids. The solids are filling her up and she is not interested in her formula now. Always offer her formula first and only then give her the solids. Do not give her too much in the way of solids now and only twice a day to start off.
