Malaria prophylaxis is always problematic in young children. The usual advice would be not to take children under 2yrs or 10-12kg into a malaria area. Take all the necessary precautions to prevent a masquito bite; a mosquito net at night; repellent, long sleeved clothes etc. after dusk and preferrably go in winter time. Mefloquin is usually advised in children >10-12kg, but it may be quite a struggle to get them to drink it.
