Bathing kids during winter

My kids have a cold now. I did take them to the dr. Please help me, my mother in law keeps telling me not to bath my kids when it is cold, she said it is not healthy during winter to bath them, I should just take bath towel with hot water and wipe them, I totally disagree.Nowadays my kids hate to bath. What I normally do is to make sure that their bedroom is warm, put on the heater, then take them to the bathroom. As far as I know even if you are sick you can't get off to bed, once you bath you feel much better, hot bath heals a lot.
I may be wrong but I need an advice please moms and paediatrician.

I agree, one always feels better after a nice bath. Take their clothes to the bathroom. Keep the door closed while you running in the bath water and while they are bathing and dress them there before going out the bathroom.
