Couple days: Most medications clear within about four dose-lengths. So if you were taking it every 12 hours, by 48 hours it's gone. Shorter if it was dosed mor often, longer if it was dosed less often.

Try again: If she vomits immediately following dosing you may try to give the dose again. If any time has passed, 15-30 minutes or more since administration of the medication, i generally do not recommend giving the dose again. If she vomits after the second attempt, contact your pediatrician.

Per kilo body weight: Most antibiotics have dosages by milligrams per kilo body weight per day; amoxicillin, for example, is 40-100 mg/kg/day, so an 11-pound (5-kilo) baby would get up to 500 mg per day, usually in 2 doses, so that's 250 mg twice a day, maximum.
