do you switch a lot during the session from one breast to the other? if so, try one side nursing and see how she does with that, first she gets formilk which is mainly just water and she will not fill up on that, the next is hindmilk which is mainly fat and will subsides her hunger. but if you are switching before she gets the hindmilk she is going to nurse more because she is still hungry.
also since you are using a sheild the sessions will last longer because the flow of your milk isnt as fast, so where it may normally take 10-15 minutes to nurse without, it may take 20-30, maybe more, with.

Id also try to wake her more after to nurse, 4-5 hours seems a little too long especially for such a wee one using nipple shields
