My 9 month old drunk some whole milk. Could it make her sick?

Only if one of her parents has lactose intolerance, which means she'll have it too. You can give whole meal in cereals from 6 months and start giving them little bits in bottles from 9 months. If she does have an allergic reaction it would be: a nappy rash, rash on the cheeks or hives over her body or even vomiting but not usually a fever, that could be from teething?

It wouldn't be the milk that has given her the fever. It wouldn't make her sick if she drank it just once (unless it was off and breeding bacteria?). The main reason whole milk is not recommended at this age is because it doesn't contain the nutrients needed, and they can't digest it particularly well. But her having had some once is not going to have any long term effect, or harm her in any way.
