She certainly does not have a 'dirty' stomach and you need not try any medicines for this. She is probably just going through a period when she does not need to eat as much as previously-this is quite common after the very rapid growth of the first year of life. Another common reason is teething as her molar teeth are coming through.She will eat what she needs so don't force her.
