Re: 6 mo still swaddling...
Breastmilk alone meets all baby's nutritional needs until around the first birthday. So a 6 month old baby doesn't need solids because the breast no longer provides enough food for her. Rather, she needs solids for play, for experiencing new tastes and textures, and for practicing new motor skills.

Another thing that's going on at 6 months is teething, and that can cause increased nursing demand and also fussiness.
Basically, I don't think your LO was starving for solids so much as she was enjoying a new experience which distracted her when she was feeling fussy.
