What is Taxim and Neopeptine for?

My male baby was 2.5kg old, when born. I visit a doctor after 15 days for a regular checkup. He find that my baby is 2.25 kg weight. He prescribed Taxim O for 7 days & Neopeptine for a month. Please suggest me, why he prescribed antibiotic like Taxim O & Neopeptine?

Hallo . Thank for asking this question . Babies loose weight around 10 % but regain by 10th day of life . Afterward they gain average 200 grams per week . Definitely your baby is lower side of weight . But feeding problem is the most common cause for that . Please increase your calorie consumption 550 K calorie extra for the baby and also give feed by correct position & technique [ can take expert help ] . Monitor weight weekly . Still the problem persist than go for proper investigation and then treatment . Hope I have answered your query . For further questions please contact .
