I, for the life of me, could not figure out why my stepdaughter's mom seldom gives her a bath when she is there (she lives with us one week, then her mom the next with the odd extra day or two at our house). She arrived yesterday with greasy, matted hair again and told me that she didn't have a bath all week. But if her mom subscribes to the once-a-week theory, then that would explain it. She could just leave all of the baths up to our house.
I also bathe my girls once or twice a week. However, if either child was stinky or had greasy, matted hair then they would get a bath that night. So even though I'm a "once a weeker", the situation with your DSD would bother me if I were in your shoes.
I do have to mention how relieved I am that I'm not alone!
My girls love baths, but if they don't need or want one then I don't give them one.
