Feeding 8 Week Old Pup

Hi everyone,
I've seen alot of different comments so I am just trying to lock down some solid info.
Our puppy is 8 weeks old and full of fun and life. How often should I be feeding her?
Currently we are weening her of off Purina Puppy Chow. Using about half that and half Blue Diamond with some pumpkin mixed in (got rid of loose stools from new food).
She's eating about 1 cup three times a day. does this sound about right?

thanks for the input!

One cup three times per day sounds about right. Smart move getting her off the puppy chow.

great thank you. We are moving her onto Blue Buffalo. It seems like a good option.

Ditto...1 cup x3.
Big fan of Eagle Pack Holistic Select.
Mixed the dry w/ some wet. They love it and their stools are perfect and they go like clockwork.

My breeder originally told me to just set a bowl down and let him graze. I found out the hard way that leads to A LOT of accidents. So I have been feeding 1- 1 1/2 cups twice a day. 1 in the morning, and 1 after work. It helps a little with keeping him in check. I think I am about to start feeding him at noon too...though right now he hasn't eaten AT ALL!!

I gave 1 1/2 cups (Switched from nutra to Blue LBP) with one egg in the morning, 1 cup with 1 egg around noon and 1 activia light yogurt at night. I use the kibble for training too.
