In brief: Diagnosis?
What part of the baby is infected with citrobacter? Head, chest, belly, bladder, etc? Knowing which part of the body is infected (diagnosis) is more important than knowing the name of the bacteria causing the infection.
Be that as it may, antibiotics in the carbapenem class are the most effective and safe for your wee baby. Ask your doctor to refer you to an infectious disease specialist.
