Question potty pads and new puppy

Hi I'm hoping for advice from anyone with experience using potty pads. I have an eight week old puggle who I am training to go on potty pads for two reasons. 1) The breeder I got her from says it's too cold out for her right now (it's about 15 degrees here). 2) Since she's so young I don't want to expose her to the commonground outside of my apartment complex where many dogs do their business and since she hasn't had all her shots yet.
Ok, so here are my concerns...I'm worried that since I'm training her on potty pads now, she won't be able to learn to go outside later. Also, when she poos on the potty pad, she instantly starts eating it. And I am right on top of her when she does it, but she always manages to get a bite (sorry about the gross factor here). And, if I swoop the potty pad up before she eats it, then it never fails that since I've distracted her, she runs onto the carpet to finish pooping there. Any advice is appreciated.
