Newborn questions

Is it normal for a newborn to have bowl movements like twice an hr. Also is it suppose to be a watery green, sweet smelling poop? My daughter is 9 days old. Is on formula but poops so much lol. Another question ive noticed today that she has green boogery dishcarge in the corner of her eyes. Not alot. She goes to the doctor on monday, poor thing developed what they think is a yeast infection. Sorry for all the questions but thanks!
