my LO is 3 months old and has a cold/cough he can't shake. it's affecting his sleeping and dr. is worried it's turning into an ear infection... he's had it almost 1.5 weeks and is not getting better. he also has a low grade fever. they are suggesting antibiotics but also said that if baby gets antibiotics so young, it sets him up to get every little thing and then could require antibiotics to get over it. have any of you had to give your LO antibiotics at a young age? (before a year?) did you find they got sicker then afterwards? i'm scared to give him the antibiotics, but scared not to give them as well. i am very discouraged right now and want to cry.
