Default Too many baths???

Hello everyone. I realized I hadn't given Poppy a bath with soap in about 2 months and she was kind of stinky so I scrubbed her with baby wash and a toothbrush about 3 days ago. All was great. Today Poppy smelled horrible and I saw some dried poop stuck to her quills. Should I give her another bath? I don't want to dry her skin out from too frequent bathing but I also don't want her smelling and being covered in old poo! Any advice? Thanks.

Rather than giving her a bath try wiping her quills with a warm wet cloth. I should help get her cleaner with out drying her skin out.
