... I'd be more afraid of the silver than cephalexin. Cephalosporin are probably one of the safer antibiotics. Why is silver more 'natural' or safer? Cephalosporin compounds were first isolated from sewers; how much more natural is that? What evidence exists that a cephalosporin is more risky than silver or vice versa? Who regulates the recommended silver formulations to ensure proper silver content? (There have been reports of inconsistent formulations.) What are the possible side effects of both options, particularly in children? These are the questions I would ask myself.
Also, this may be a little off-topic but I would be cautious with lavender, particularly on boys. I highly suspect it is an endocrine disruptor. Lavender may work in ways similar to the hormone oestrogen. It has been suspected of inducing breast growth in a few pre-pubescent boys whose mothers were using topical applications containing lavender oil. (Their breasts returned to normal after stopping the applications.) This is probably more of side-effect of long-term use but I'd still be cautious. There was lavender in my dishwasher soap while I suffered infertility. Was it a contributing factor? Who knows.
