Train travel from Basel EuroAirport requires 2 hrs and 32 or 36 minutes to reach Wilderswil.
It does require a bus for the first leg, and a fair number of changes of train (how many depend on which specific trip) as well as some for walking 6 minutes in Basel. It would be a bit tiring with a lot of luggage and a small child, I suspect. If I were coming in jet-lagged on an intercontinental flight, I'd not want to do it myself. If you are on the European clock by then, perhaps it would be tolerable.
The journey starts every half hour until 1830, then 1930, 2037, 2107, 2137 (this one has a fully loaded train on the leg from Basel to Olten at 2202---shift change at the SBB?), and 2307.
The train at route at 1730 has relatively few changes, as does the one at 1830.
Both offer a restaurant car during the 2 hour segment from Basel to I. Ost.
A taxi might be an option at Interlaken. Swiss cabs are not cheap. but for larger parties and short distances, they sometimes make sense.
At least, if you miss a connection, there would be another one not too long after soon after. Most routes are identical; one goes through I. West instead of I.Ost, which is a minor issue to fix with a train, bus or taxi.
