Hi Deepa,
Azee 100 which contains Azithromycin is safe in children also.
Dosage depends on weight of the baby.Its 10mg/Kg body weight of the baby.
Feed the baby well when giving Azee 100.
It may cause gastric pain in some.
Its a very effective drug for upper respiratory infection.
Keep the baby warm and protect from cold.
