In brief: See your doc!

This sort of thing is unusual.
An increase in the number of bowel movements should be investigated further. It can mean that the bowel is not absorbing the food nutrients effectively, and that it is just passing through. Has your child's diet changed? Another cause could be an infection. Ignoring this situation could cause dehydration or irreversible damage, so you really need to see her doctor.
