Son is 7 months, has left ear infection, and prescribed Amoxicillin 400mg/5ml suspension- directions state give 4ml twice a day for 10 days. Too much?

In brief: Pretty standard

The dosing is up to 80-90 mg/kg/day to cover for resistant pneumococcus.
This dose would be expected for a kid weighing 15-16 lb.
