Baby 7 months old not eating solids

My baby girl just turned 7 months last week. I am trying to feed her solids like oat/ rice cereal and also introduced variety of fruits and vegetables but she is not at all showing interest to eat and she is not opening her mouth. And also she is only on breastmilk. Not taking formula too. I am scared that what if my milk supply gets low how she can survive? Please suggest me tips/ tricks in helping my baby to eat the solid foods?

    Pump while baby eats to keep up supply also you need to still offer the breast after solid otherwise your supply will tank

    It's all new to her! Just keep offering and don't give up! I like to give mine puree and something for him to be able to pick up. Doesn't need to be elaborate, frozen peas are a good start, or half a banana because more than likely she will just play with it and explore. For the first few months he would make a disgusted face every time he ate something, but it can take up to 15 times of trying a new food before a baby or toddler will decide if they like it or not. Now he cries if I don't feed him whatever i am eating!

    If your breast milk gets low she"ll learn sooner or later that she has to eat, especially since shes around the age Babies start solids.the more you offer it but dont force it the better she'll do.
