Hope you are doing good. Mostly babies which slightly bow has flat foot. there is also possibility of rickets. you should do X-ray wrist to rule of rickets ( Bone degeneration ) , x-ray knee joint and calcium levels to rule out the under lying cause of her slight bowing.

Hope you are satisfied with the answer
