My 15 month old has had colds probably 40-50% of the time since birth. He has also had 2 ear infections, so this is his second time on amoxicillin. He is fairly little, 20 pounds, so he is getting about 150mg of amoxil at each dose (3x daily). I was surprised this morning when I changed his diaper to be able to smell the antibiotic in his diaper, like he was peeing it out. I don't want to not give him the antibiotic, but at the same time I feel uneasy about it simply because his pee smells like it. Any tips or advice on amoxil and toddlers would be appreciated. I know he should eat yogurt while on antibiotics, but pretty much all I can get into his tummy is breastmilk right now. He just plays with the food.
