I have 2 kids 5 and 7 years of age and I know what you mean they have this grown up small smell about them so I started to use deodorant on them they like it . They are very ticklish what kid isn't...lol. I just put a dab on them not like you would on yourself I do this every morning or every other morning.

if you don't want to use deoderant try baby powder
Deodorant should be OK, ask the pediatrician when you tell her about the problem- she needs to know- even if only to discuss this with you. Anyway I think that deodorant would in general not have the worrisome chemicals that antiperspirants do, So maybe a natural deodorant. Or maybe a little baking soda. Definitely bathe every night (or morning) and wash the underarm area in the morning, too. Ask the pediatrician about it and for recommendations.
