She's perfectly normal. Just let her nurse whenever she wants. I know it's exhausting, but it's the best thing for her... and your supply. She might gain weight quickly (my son gained 12 ounces in 3 days as a newborn), but it will even itself out eventually.

Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!
You can't overfeed a breast fed baby. Chubby babies are formula fed. Yes, it sometimes feels like they won't stop feeding, or won't sleep, but they eventually do. Breastfeeding will all settle down,but it may take a few months. Just think how much nutritious goodness you are providing for your little girl, that will lay foundations for good health for both of you and strengthen the bond between you. May you be a blessing to one another.
