This does not sound like an infection from your very good description of your little girl's symptoms. The most likely cause would be a food intolerance especially a fructose intolerance from too much fruit or fruit juice. Stop all fruit juice and only give her apple or banana as fruit for 10 days and see if her windiness and loose stools settle down.
