This is from our own experience. Our nine month old is now taking a second antibiotic. Both times I haven't noticed anything different with his poop or fussiness or anything. I always feed him immediately before giving it to him and more than just a snack. This one he just takes once a day so I do that at bed time. I got some probiotics since some of the ladies here suggested but just gave him some a couple days. It didn't seem necessary.

Absolutely probiotics for you and baby right away continue it for two weeks after the antibiotics are completed. 

Take them at least 30 minutes apart so they don't interfere with the function of each other.
