Answer:
you need to limit her milk feeds and alternate them with solids. Start with a spoon or so and gradually increase the amounts of feed according to her acceptance. Keep a gap of minimum 2 hours between her milk feed and solid feed, so that she is hungry and accepts it. Introduce only one food at a time, let her have it for 3-4 days and then introduce another food. Initially keep the consistency pouring/flowing and then thicken it according to her acceptance. Keep seasonings very mild, as babies don't generally like very strong flavours. You should also check with your paediatrician if the baby is having any gastric/teething pain, which may lead to low intake of food. Hope this helps.
