Hi, my toddler has just turned 1 last month and she's showing signs of having worms. 1. Doesn't want her food 2. Bloated tummy lots of passing wind 3. Doesn't really want her bottle either 4. Niggly and wrestless 5. Crying allot lately very irritable 6. Grinding her teeth 7. Lethargic I know it's worms because: A. We have dogs and cats who live in our home B. She interacts with them allot C. We're building and our dogs and cats love to role around in builders sand outside. All in all I know worms because my second born had the same thing and I dewormed him and a giant earth worm look a like came out it freaked me out and the damn thing was still very much alive, I nearly fainted??

How long does it take for all the worms to be out of the baby's system. I have a phobia for worms. How do I manage my baby during this stage?
