Infant with vomiting after feeding. Had bladder infection. Treatment?

My baby is 6 1/2 weeks old and was just released from the hospital a couple days ago. We were admitted on Saturday and it was determined that he had a bladder infection . He is on cefixime at home. I am worried that he is spitting up right after a feed. It s like he s not digesting it at all. This isn t happening every time but it s probably with every other feed. He is also gassy.

Pediatrician 's  Response
Your baby was just diagnosed with Bladder infection and since then he is on antibiotic Cefixime.The reason he is gassy and spitting most probably is due to the antibiotic.These could be considered the minor side effects of the antibiotic.Do not worry once the course of Cefixime gets over he should be alright.Just in case he has runny motions you could get in touch with the pediatrician for addition of some probiotic to the treatment.

Bye .
Take Care.
