Infant with enlarged liver. Have difficulty in sleeping, intestinal gas. Anything to be concerned?

I was just told my 12 month old daughter has an enlarged liver . An x-ray was done as well as blood work - the latter was normal and we are waiting for an ultrasound . Ongoing problems with intestinal gas and sleep difficulties since starting solids at 6 month prompted us seeking medical attention. What could be causing this and is it possible that she just has a larger than normal liver or does it definetly indicate a problem?

Enlarged liver is a condition which has many causes just like fever!
Also it is a clinical diagnosis and not confirmatory on a X-ray unless it is really big.
Normal blood tests is a good sign.
Do not worry.
Wait for ultrasound and further evaluation.
God bless
