Watch baby's diaper count. If baby's diaper count is fine, your supply is fine.

Easy! Don't have to do anything. Baby may just not be ready. Breastmilk is to be the main source of nutrition for the first year and solids are just for fun.

The others are right, no need to worry about a 6 month old not eating solids yet. Food for fun until they're one! Breastmilk needs to be babies main source of nutrition. And if you're worried about your supply, check out the post on Low Supply.. what is and what isn't low supply. It's pinned at the top of this community, and I've attached a link here.

At 6 months that is completely normal. Most babies arent trying any foods before 6 months and some take awhile to adjust. Just keep trying and eventually they do catch on. Like Celeste said the main nutrition (the ideal nutrition) for babies under a year is breast milk.
When you say you have to join back soon are you talking about going to work? If you need to go back to work just pump on lunch break and other times if possible (I know its really hard in some jobs) and if you have to use formula mix it with your breast milk and your baby will learn to eat it out of necessity (hunger). Its not ideal but your baby wont starve him/herself.
