I feed her on demand. In that instance, I fed her, then she was awake for a solid 2 hour block, then fell asleep for the next 2 hours. I pumped so DH could give her a bottle while I got dinner ready. She always nurses at least 8 times a day, usually 10.

I'm going to look up which herbs can hurt supply, thanks for the tip!
