In brief: Multiple reasons

A 9 month old with repeated pneumonia has a large differential diagnosis.
She could be suffering from an immune deficiency, asthma, congenital abnormality, reflux to name a few. This child deserves an extensive work-up by someone experienced in pediatric lung disease problems. This could be an allergist or pulmonologist.
