How do doctors determine antibiotic dosages for babies?

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.

I have just had my 20 week scan and the nuchal fold was 6.3mm, does this mean my baby has downs?

Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
No: The nuchal fold was developed to be assessed at 11-13 weeks, not 20. Even when it is increased, it doesn't mean the baby the baby has down's, just that there is increased risk it could.

Went to dentist and had local anaesthetic applied. How long before I can eat and feel right?

Depends on amount: As far as when you can eat it depends on the type of restoration placed. As far as feeling right, it depends on how much was given, location of of injection and your metabolism rate. Usually i tell my patients the felling should last 2-3 hours. If you are more active, this can shorten this time, the type of anesthetic also matters.
