How can I get to stop my 7 week old from wanting to nurse constantly?

Please help! My ebf daughter is 7 wks old and CONSTANTLY wants to nurse, like every 30-90 mins unless she's asleep. This has been getting worse over a week or week and a half, and now I'm getting letdown all the time and my nipples are sore, pink, and itchy. If I don't nurse her, she cries and is not distractable. She sticks out her tongue all the time now and tries sucking on her fingers, arm, or anything, but just gnaws on her paci or refuses it. I felt along her gums and did not notice any teeth budding. She has a small strawberry mark on her lower bottom lip btw.
