My daughter doesn't want to nurse from 4:30-8:00 p.m.

Seriously, it's like clockwork.  She gets SUPER fussy starting around 4:30 p.m.  She will latch on for like a minute or two and then take herself off and just cry.  I was starting to wonder if there was something wrong, like something I am eating or because of my oversupply/letdown issues.  However, I noticed if I just leave her alone, she will sleep from 4:30 to about 8:00 without wanting to wake to nurse, maybe once if I catch her while she is still super sleepy.  She is so odd. I've never had a baby do this.  It hurts my boobs though if she doesn't wake to nurse once during that period because before that she nurses like every 1-2 hours.  BTW, she is 2 weeks old.

Does she take any other naps? Does she nurse through the night? How many diapers is she going through during the day?

She still sleeps like all day but is awake usually for an hour or two in the morning and then again for an hour two in the evening after waking up at 8.  Otherwise she sleeps, wakes to change diaper and nurse, and then goes to bed like 5 minutes later lol about every one to two hours. She nurses about 3ish times at night. She goes through a million diapers a day, both pee and poop so I'm not worried about supply as of the moment. :)

 Every baby is Different. I would say just let her sleep, as long as her diaper count is fine and she is gaining weight then she is ok. Honestly  your lucky alot of babies like to cluster feed around the afternoon through the evening time. Im sure it will change when she gets older.

Oh yeah, weight gain is tremendous.  She was born 7 pounds 11 ounces, 19 1/2", lowest 7 pounds 1 ounce.  At 14 days old, she was 8 pounds 7 ounces and 21 1/4" so she's growing great! :)

Mine did that at about those times too. Maybe pump halfway through her big nap to relieve some pressure?
