Language Identification/Subsequent Translation

A heavily-accented lady told my mum today that my 7 month old sister was a "little glom". My mum seems to think she was German/Dutch, but she could be from anywhere. She didn't get time to ask either her origin or her meaning.

I've tried to look up this word for her, both in the orthography she sent me, and some related (as far as I can think), so I've tried: glom, glon, glöm, glåm, głon...

Does anyone have any ideas about this? Thanks in advance! :)
