Newborn help.

My little girl is 5 days old and I am not sure if I should be concerned about her diapers. She hasn't popped since day 2 except for a small skid mark last night. Yesterday she had 3 wet diapers. She's also down 12 oz. From her birth weight of 6 lbs 13 oz.

My milk came in yesterday. Since yesterday I've been basically shoving my breasts at her constantly and she's nursing every 1.5-2.5 hours. Most of our feeding are 15-30 minutes long. I've even pumped after nursing or if she doesn't use one breast and I only get around .25 oz per breast which I've spoonfed to her.

I have an appointment with a pediatrician tomorrow but in the meantime I'd appreciate some tips and opinions.
