What makes you think you don't have enough?

Quoting RoseBud93:

thats how I was for my mom... however my mom had to work and couldnt produce enough milk for me, so I had to be put on a bottle after a few months.
I am breast feeding my daughter and I went from having too much milk to now, not enough. -.- be happy your baby is building your supply. you dont want to be put in my situation.

Completely normal. My newest nursing is 3 days old and I joke that I didn't have a baby, I grew a new limb.

Normal. If you don't already have one, look into a baby wrap...makes the attached baby period MUCH easier.

Completely normal. You're her entire universe right now. She wants to be near you and smell you and taste your milk as much as she can.

Congrats, BTW :-)

normal!  After 8 to 12 weeks it is less frequent.

Its normal! You are making enough milk, you are doing great! Keep nursing her and sleep when you can.

My daughter did that for about two weeks. It is totally normal. It was explained to me like this: your baby is learning to nurse while your body is learning to feed her. Basically, some of the time she is nursing she is not actually getting milk, but she is learning how to get milk and also comforting herself. At the same time your body is developing a supply that will eventualy match baby's demand.
