There is no worm medicine that is recommended for a 10 month baby but if REALLY necessary a SINGLE dose of Vermox Syrup 5ml once off can be given.Magnesium supplements must be used with extreme caution in infants. There must be a valid medical reason for their use.Please discuss this with your paediatrician.
