Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Babies, the younger they are, the more susceptible they are to various diseases and not only that, even natural things like mineral water are not recommended to be given to babies until they are 6 months old. So that breast milk is the only food that is most recommended for babies in their first 6 months of life, unless there are other conditions that prevent them from consuming formula milk.
In your case, your steps in taking your child to the pediatrician are correct, and if you were given antibiotics at a very young age, your pediatrician is likely to judge what happened to your child as more than just a cold. Because if it's only a cold, this condition is mostly caused by a virus, in which the virus is not treated with antibiotics, and can heal on its own so there is no need for medicine, especially in children who are still not even 2 months old and are still susceptible to infection.
Then regarding allergies, allergic reactions vary, it can be the appearance of red spots, tightness, itching, swollen lips and so on, but shaking legs are not one of them. Our advice, go back to your pediatrician with your child and tell about it. Your pediatrician will evaluate whether it is a true reaction to antibiotics and may reconsider giving antibiotics if this is the case. In addition, you also have the right to seek a second opinion from another pediatrician if you wish.
Meanwhile, avoid your child from sick people, stay away from cigarette smoke, dust and air pollution, continue to provide lots of breast milk for his endurance, and keep the home environment clean. So, hopefully it answers your question.
