Welcome to Just Answer. The reason your little one is defecating so much is due to the loose stools. When they are loose, the colon is most likely irritated and it makes them feel that they have to go more frequently. When the stools are more firm, they have less stimulation to defecate. The loose stools could definitely be a sign of intestinal parasites. I would take her and a stool sample to your vet to have them check for them. If she doesn't have them, they can start her on some medication to correct her loose stools.
