I would say it is not common for a baby of 15 months to not be in any way interested in solids. But it happens. iirc we had another mom post on here some time ago whose 18 month old never ate anything. Certainly many children this age eat very little or very sporadically.
This is not to say your child's nutritional needs are not being met by breastmilk. They can be. Many children, not only breastfed ones, have low iron, and if it is very low, that is a potentially serious healthy issue, which is why iron levels are routinely tested. So your child being breastfed is not the cause of any issues. I would say that especially given your child's unwillingness to eat, it is very good thing your child is breastfed.
But that does not really answer your question, which I guess is, is it ok to just wait and let baby figure this out? I am afraid I cannot answer that. Yes, your child may be having all her nutritional needs met by your breastmilk and will start eating solids when she is ready. maybe baby has some oral aversions due to her illness and it's treatment and she is working those out overtime and will soon eat. But maybe there is a developmental delay or some physical issue affecting her ability to eat and therapy would help. (it is actually a pretty complicated process, to bite, chew, move food around in the mouth with the tongue, and swallow.)
you are offering your child solid foods. It is not as if you are withholding nutrition from your child. While it is...
