Congrats! Are you going to be getting her a friend eventually? Gliders are highly social and really do best in at least pairs.

Since they are nocturnal, they sleep most of the day. She should be fine sleeping in a bonding pouch all day. But if it where me, I think I'd put her back in the cage a few times a day just in case she wants to get up and go to the bathroom, or get a drink of water or something.

It doesn't matter if you're with her a lot - you're not a glider. Interaction from a human doesn't replace having another glider around. It's your decision of course, but gliders kept alone are a lot more prone to depression and self mutilation even with the attentions of their human owners.

I'm not trying to be rude or anything but sugar gliders are a colony animal, they are happiest in at least pairs.
