Brief Answer:
Chronic tonsillitis

Detailed Answer:
hi
welcome to healthcare magic and thanks for putting up the query
as per your complaints it is probably chronic tonsillitis but it would be better if I can send me the pictures of her throat..that would help me to reach an exact diagnosis
treatment of chronic tonsillitis is antibiotics in acute phase followed by Surgery ie tonsillectomy..
as your baby is small..she might be breast feeding so keep a check on the antibiotics she takes
get a throat swan for culture sensitivity done..
do regular gargles to avoid frequent infections..
any further questions are always welcome
please follow up with the reports and pictures
Thanks and regards
