My daughter is 1 week away from being 3 months old. She only has one kidney so we are watching her closely to make sure nothing is wrong. 2 weeks ago she weight 13lbs 1 oz and today we got her weighed again at the same place, and she weighs 13 lbs 1 oz... absolutely no weight gain in 2 weeks but no loss either. I'm worried that maybe something is wrong. She's been having mucousy poop for about 3 days now, and she's been sleeping A LOT (like 15+ hours a day). She's also started teething (been gnawing on everything and drooling like you wouldn't believe). She doesn't have a fever or anything. I don't know what's wrong... She has the appropriate amount of wet and soiled diapers a day... I need recomendations.

Not for another 2 weeks at the pediatricians. I think I might call the nurses hotline... see what they have to say.

Because she has only one kidney, I think you should talk with a qualified medical person, to see if there is a problem, and if so, how you should treat it. Does she have a check-up scheduled?
