19mo & deodorant: Was it applied topically - nothing to worry about - simply bathe her and she should be fine. If she ingested some - (solid stick type) at this point just encourage her normal feedings and it will pass. The active ingredient in most are various aluminum compounds. It is unlikely she had a major dose. I think she will be fine. BUT please put the products out of reach.
