Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

As the age of baby is above 2 years , single dose of Albendazole 400mg irrespective of body weight is sufficient to deworm him.

In case you need any further assistance, will be glad to assist you.

Wishing you happy and healthy life

Take Care

Best Regards
