Thank you for posting your query.

There is no need to worry about the seizure in your infant. She should be shown to a neurologist, who may order MRI brain and electroencephalogram (EEG).

If she has a recurrence of seizure or if EEG is abnormal, then, anti-epileptic medications should be started.

She would be alright with medications.

I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
