Sometimes I notice that the leaves are coming off in whole pieces from stem. There’s no unusual markings on the plant, and it looks otherwise healthy. I’m not sure if it’s because the water recommendations are too much or what.

Yep...curling at the edges. You could try bottom watering. Set the inner pot in a shallow container of water and allow water to absorb that way. I will leave for 10 min or so....or until I notice the lever of water is lower. This could help that plant get a more thorough watering. Other than the curling it looks great....you even got a little baby in there!! That is always a great sign.
Curling leaves on these guys are usually telling you more water is needed. If they aren't curled before falling off then it may be an over water issue. Try to snooze the next watering cycle to allow soil to dry out a bit more and see if your plant seems happier after that. Also you could change location to allow more light....leaves drop at times to conserve energy when sunlight is scarcer. Hope this helps! Good luck.
Is this the kind of curling leaves you were talking about? @PlantEsteem
@PlantEsteem Thank you so much! I really appreciate it.
