Having my baby in the 24 hours. Me and my 2 daughters all have bacterial conjunctivitis. Antibiots is taking time. Will baby be ok if she get it?

Prevention. Teach kids to wash their hands often with warm water and soap. They also should not share tissues, washcloths, towels, or pillowcases with other people. Wash your own hands thoroughly after touching an infected child's eyes, and throw away items after they've been used to clean eyes. Wash towels and other linens that the child has used in hot water.

Can I get antibiotic for bacterial conjunctivitis over the phone?

Depends on your doc. It's taking a chance diagnosing over the phone. You could get it wrong and treat it improperly. If your doctor has seen you for this multiple times and your symptoms are exactly the same then they may consider it.
