Wet diapers and breastfeeding

My 34 weeker just came home a week ago tomorrow. She has been doing good as far as I can tell with nursing. She has a wet diaper with a smear of poop when I change her almost every feeding. Is it safe to assume she's getting enough? She only nurses from one side most times. I try to get her to nurse the other side after a burp and she just falls asleep with no interest. She doesn't cry when she's hungry either and grunts for 20 minutes after I lay her down when she's done eating. I'm finding it hard to read her signals and I'm tempted to get my own scale to weigh her.

My son whose corrected age is 7 months still only feeds from one side. Like you, I try feeding him from the second boob everytime but he never takes it. His weight gain was on track so the doctors were not worried.
