Potty training

Alright one more puppy question for the night! We have had our frenchie for a total of three days and potty training is going very good in my opinion! One thing I have noticed though, she is currently pooping at least 4-5 times a day, is this normal?
Not to gross anyone out, but it is solid and looks healthy and normal, I'm just astonished with how often she is going?
We are feeding her the food our breeder told us to feed (our breeder is also a vet), and it is a limited ingredient diet food to avoid any allergy aggregations she may have. We are mixing half wet and half dry until she is another 2 weeks older.
Any info or experience with your previous puppy will be very helpful! Just want to make sure this bathroom routine is normal?

Puppies are poop machines, our boy is 7 months old and still poops 3 or 4 times a day. He eats Canidae All Stages now, but I plan to change him to Natures Variety Instinct Limited Ingredient Turkey like his older "brother" eats.
That's pretty normal, as long as its solid and healthy looking like you said. Glad the training is going good so far!

Yes, when we first got Cheli... he went 4-5 times a day too... all looked OK and then he gradually went to 2x a day (morning and afternnon)
What is your puppy's feeding schedule? We feed Wilbur twice a day (morning and evening) and he usually poops three times a day. If the puppy's feeding schedule is broken into smaller and more frequent times during the day, then she will require more frequent visits outside.
Right now we feed her three times a day.
Wet food/dry food mix in the morning, just dry food for lunch, and a wet food/ dry food mix.
It's getting better the older she gets. But still roughly 5 times a day ha
