heya my daughter is 6 months and i am breastfeeding her, it seems like she is latched on all the time, when i try her with any thing else she throws it up, and screams.

I agree, just keep breastfeeding. 6 months is when many babies are ready to "start" being introduced to solids, but not every baby is ready at 6 months. Your baby can continue to grow and thrive on breast milk alone through her first birthday. Remember "Food for fun until they're one".

I'd say wait a few weeks or a month and then try introducing some solid food again. Maybe check out this site on baby led weaning. Let your baby decide when she's ready for solids, and how much etc.
