Q.

De-worm

Do I need to de-worm my 10 month old? We do have pets and she is crawling. She doesn' t show signs of a worm infection - I was just wondering if a de-worm course is good.

You do not need to de-worm your baby. Worm tretaments are only available for children older than 12 months. In any case there is no sign that your baby has worms.
