You mention that your baby has quite a distended abdomen. She may have worms and it is worthwhile giving her a worm syrup such as Vermox 5ml twice daily for 3 days.It is not usually necessary to give children of this age any vitamins.If she does not improve it would be a good idea for her to be seen by a paediatrician.
