  • I would look at what she was wearing in between baths. Was she overdressed? Was the fabric breathable? While a two year old can get funky from time to time if they need a bath, if it's happening ALL the time, I'd suspect that there's excessive sweating going on, or bacteria trapped in some clothes, because little kids' sweat isn't supposed to be good food for sweat-producing bacteria.

  • Babies can get funky just like you can. If she is playing. Or over dressed. Kids sweat too.

  • Why are your two older ones wearing deodorant at such young ages? THAT is not normal, either!
