    Just because they get too much formula and it comes out the nose, it doesn’t necessarily mean they will get aspiration pneumonia. It would have to get into the lungs. Watch for signs of aspiration pneumonia which are clicking, lethargy and loss of appetite.

    I would recommend that you try to find an antibiotic just in case. The best antibiotics would be Ciprofloxacin or Baytril. You could also use doxycycline or Septra (SMZ/TMP). Ask family and friends if they have left over antibiotics. It only takes one pill. Let us know what you can fine.

    We would need the mg of the pill and the weight of the baby.
