Won't eat anything except for purity fruit flavor.

Good day Doctor My daughter is 7 months 2 weeks. my challenge is she won't eat anything except for purity fruit flavor only. i tried everything , like very soft mash potatoes, eggs, chicken livers even the different flavors of purity. she won't eat them, she'll just take a bite and vomit seriously. she won't even eat cerelec, i tried original and different brands and flavors, but she still vomits. I'm still breastfeeding her though.

Many babies take a bit longer to get started on solids. Your baby is in good company in not liking  chicken livers or eggs. You are probably aware that Cerelac cereal contain cow's milk. Give her a few days break from solids which she won't miss anyway then start all over with introducing her to solids. Start with a plain rice cereal such as Purity rice cereal. In the morning and evening. Just a few spoons at a time followed by her breast milk. Once she is taking the cereal introduce her to bigger helpings then butternut or pumpkin followed by apple or pear. After that introduce lamb or chicken and expand the number of vegetables that you give your baby.
