My 6 month old daughter has foul odor coming from her urine.... Her vagina also smells fishy. The urine smells like ammonia.. She only drinks milk?

In brief: Possible UTI

This is frequently the only symptom of a urinary infection in babies so you need to get a urinalysis done.
Her pediatrician or her/his nurse can apply a urine bag. Will need a catheterized or supra-pubic specimen for culture if positive. On the other hand, but less likely, smell might be from uninfected urine or vagina if she inadvertently pushed a little stool or something else up her vagina.

In brief: Maybe an infection

You should take her to the pediatrician to make sure she doesn't have an urinary tract infection.
