Question Neisseria gonorrhoeae conjunctivitis

In a neonate days 2-7 the mcc of conjunctivitis is N. gonorrhoeae.
We should use antibiotic. Which one ceftriaxone or cefotaxime???
Ceftriaxone is contraindicated in neonates but I have from UW give ceftriaxone. MTB 2 ID says to give cefotaxime in neonates instead of ceftriaxone.

Cefotaxime is preferred, yes. Because ceftriaxone is metabolised by the biliary system, which isn't adequately developed in neonates.
