    Default Need antibiotic dosing info ASAP

    Baby less than 2 weeks old. Was doing GREAT at 1:30 am feeding. He has refused to eat since 5am. Looks like AP, but I have no idea how to dose. His color is bad, and he's struggling to breathe. Going down fast! Help!

    He weighs 20.6 grams

    I have ciprofloxacin 500mg
    Amox/clav 875-125mg

    Is there anything I can do now to make him more comfortable ? I can't believe I'm just helplessly sitting here watching him die.
