You don't HAVE to start on solids. Sounds like your baby isn't ready yet.
My first wasn't really interested in solids until he could eat table foods- about 11 months.
This time I was going to wait, but he was trying to grab food off our plates at 4 months... so we started rice cereal, and he ate every drop, and is a little piglet everytime we offer solids. He is breastfed, refuses formula.
