What do you mean that you don't know what kind of infection your child has? You didn't ask before they put him on meds?

To answer your question, any antibiotic regimen needs to be fully completed. That means if you are supposed to take/administer for 3 days, you do 3 full days. If it's for 5 days, you do 5, etc. So whatever it is, if he's on an antibiotic within 4 days of birth, you definitely want to finish that med regimen
