You certainly would map each child_cfg to a single child_sa.

If you need two child_sa/child_cfg depends on your requirements: If you
need RFC 2401 ESP+AH bundles, you'd probably go with a single CHILD_SA.
These bundles are obsolete since RFC 4301. There you'd install two
CHILD_SAs separately, where the second selector matches the output of
the first.
