Question Infant UTI, Avoid Antibiotics?

Hello Everyone!

My 8-month-old daughter just tested positive for a UTI yesterday. For the last couple days, I've noticed temperature spikes (up to 102) and also a swelling in her soft-spot that corresponds with the fever spikes. She then goes almost back to normal in between. (The doctor absolutely insists that the soft-spot bulging is fine and is not related to the UTI. At this point in my research, I'm not so sure.)

Anyway, her pediatrician immediately recommended an antibiotic shot (which I want to avoid at all costs!) and HAS prescribed her a round of oral antibiotics (which I want to avoid altogether if possible).

I can't find ANYTHING online about antibiotic alternatives when treating an infant's UTI. I'm curious if anyone has had success in treating their babies with natural remedies. Thanks in advance!
