Brief Answer:
you can use electric mosquito killer with caution.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
You can use good night electric mosquito killer but with caution and not for a long time .
The smoke emitted by the instrument may adversely affect the tender respiratory passages especially if he is prone to hyper active air way disease.
If there is no family history of Asthma or allergic disorders,it is OK.
Other wise it triggers an attack for the baby if he is prone.
If possible better use mosquito net.
