Thanks for the info! From looking at the boards, it seemed like a lot of babies take more than my son. He weighs over 15 lbs now and his dosage was adjusted accordingly. But our doctor is pretty conservative, so maybe that's why she doesn't want to give him more. In any case, I agree with you-- I am also very grateful that Propranolol is available for our kids.
