Our little Bri has not been growing fast enough. She’s still about 5 oz. under her birth weight and she’s 3 weeks old. However she is growing at a steady rate so our pediatrician was not seriously concerned. He gave me a prescription for Reglan which is supposed to increase my milk supply. Unfortunately one of the side effects is drowsiness which when combined with 3 weeks of not getting enough sleep makes for a very disoriented condition. I think Bri is feeling the drowsiness too because we’ve both been napping all day. Anyway, I only have to take the medicine for one week. So we’re going to try to push through and sleep as much as we need to. But if I don’t answer your calls or e-mails don’t be alarmed. I’m so groggy that it’s really hard not to walk into walls (only a slight exaggeration ) And answering the phone is not high on the priority list right now!
