Because it's an antibiotic, it's job is to kill bacterial infections, but it can do its job too well and wipe out our normal (and necessary) flora which can cause some uncomfortable side effects. On top of the allergic reaction signs that Lindsey listed, amoxicillin can also cause some stomach upset - which in babies can mean being extra fussy around and immediately after feedings, extra throwing up incidences and/or diarrhea. It can also increase the chances of babies developing thrush or other yeast infections, so keep an eye out that as well.
