Because we plan to travel for so long, we do not take anti-Malarial medications - they simply are not practical for the long-term traveller who comes and goes from malaria zone to non-malaria zone. Instead we travel with Malarone (a Malarial treatment or prevention - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atovaquone/proguanil), and Malarone Junior (as prescribed by our travel medicine doctor) which we can take if needed to while we get to a hospital.
The medicines for Gypsy are medicines we were prescribed by our travel medicine doctor to cover all general bases whilst on the road.
If you run out, Malaysia, Thailand the Philippines and Sri Lanka, are amazing for buying replacement supplies - they are of good quality, are cheap and you can buy pretty much anything over the counter (6 rupees (4cents per valium anybody?)
And yes, we know our medical kit is HUGE - it weighs close to 2 kg, but we have been travelling for a long time and have used almost everything in it (except for Malarone thankfully!!) And it NEVER hurts to be over-prepared, especially when travelling with a baby.
