Are you only trying with purée? I would sit her on your lap and see if she will pick up anything from your plate and put it to her mouth if she does then next time just put stuff from your plate on her high chair tray and let her go for it!
My son eats so much more than my daughter ever did as I did baby led weaning from the word go. I did purée with my girl and it took me forever to wean her.

Bit confused? So she will take solids now but not purees but won't take boob? Or won't take solids but will drink?
If a case of solids means she won't have boob then maybe she is ready to wean off the boob all together? Or maybe because she is having solids from her tray she is fuller so needs less boob feeds. How many does she have? At that age, Sophia had 2 feeds a day (however she was fully weaned at this point), one in the morning and one at night but offered cows milk at lunchtime in addition. Even when first weaning, again as a guide, she was on four bfs a day.
If not eating solids AT ALL, then I think bypass the HV and talk to doctor as milk alone does not have all the nutrients she will need at her age which i think would be enough reason for concern and for someone to look into further. Hope u find answers soon.
