Yes, normal! Keep feeding on demand and feedings will start to space out a bit as she gets a little bigger. Read "How often should I nurse my baby?" at http://www.llli.org/FAQ/frequency.html
"Babies who breastfeed frequently (as long as they are latched on correctly) tend to get plenty of milk because their mothers' milk supplies have been boosted by the frequent stimulation. Research now shows that restricting the amount of time at the breast and extending the time between feedings can reduce not only a mother's milk supply, but also the fat content of her milk -- resulting in a hungry, crying baby."
