I wouldn't. Especially if you haven't even given him solids yet, but I wouldn't even if you already started because it may be tough on his tummy and intestines. Talk to you doctor.

No. If you're concerned call the pediatrician is could be croupe or something else that actually requires antibiotics to treat.
