It sounds to me that you have a busy little girl that doesn't have time to nurse during the day and makes up for it at night - it's called reverse feeding, you can either continue with this or maybe give her a time in the day that everything quietens down and nurse her, do you feel that may be possible? Create a little nursing area with dim lighting, soft furnishings, sleepy music and get her just to rest a little and take the time to nurse and see if that makes a difference. How often does she have a wet nappy? Do you feel that she urinates sufficiently? If not uping her fluid intake is essential otherwise you'll be plagued with UTI and such like which isn't fun, I went through all that with dd and she was older but it's not an easy thing. Personally if I were you I'd try to up the nursings during the day and see what happens, hope things improve for you.
ewe + dh = our little lambs + we and have many just : and : life .
