Re: Back to work - low supply - Dr. gave me Reglan?
Your baby's weight gain sounds slow, but still in the normal range. Before I took Reglan, I would want to make sure that 5 oz/week wasn't just his/her normal pattern. How is nursing going? Any pain? Is the baby sleepy at all? How are the baby's diapers? Diaper output is the best way to judge milk input- if output is normal, so is input.
I took Reglan and had no adverse side-effects from it. The only thing it did for me was to increase supply. However, I feel that while Reglan helped me, what helped more was pumping frequently using an excellent pump (in my case, a hospital-grade rental).
Your pumping output actually sounds pretty normal. These links should be helpful:
I'm not pumping enough milk. What can I do?
How much expressed milk will my baby need?
