Father bathing his daughter

Q: Please could you tell me if there is any ruling in Islam for a father not to help with the looking after of his daughter with bathing her and washing her when she uses the bathroom. My daughter is now six and insha Allah another girl on the way. My mother in law refuses to let me help and insists only she and my wife may do this.

A: Let the women do this work.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
