we have recently visited the Jungfraujoch and therefore thought of replying to your queries.
Jungfraujoch is the gap or the saddle between the two mountain peaks Mönch and Jungfrau. It's at an elevation of 3466 m. It's an amazing place.
As with any high altitude place you need to take some precautions, especially when you are travelling with a baby.
We had no problem whatsoever except getting suntanned as we didn't apply sufficient sunscreen lotion.
Assuming that you will visit in summer and on a clear, sunny day, please note that it can be hot or very hot on the top. Try covering your exposed body parts with some light clothing as the sun rays kind of burns the skin. Wear caps and hats. You must wear sunglasses, even your baby should, otherwise the reflection of sunlight on the white snow will dazzle your eyes. Please take it easy to walk around and not run around as that might make you feel dizzy. Try holding your baby's hand all the time and if you can please wear walking boots and not runners which will be easy for walking around in the snow along with a foldable walking stick, although we wore runners only and didn't have any stick, we still had no problem. It's a safe and a mixture of plain and sloping glacial land.
We did sledging and had lot of fun :-). My son also did the snow mobile. There are many options of skiing, zip lining and something more. Please make sure to drink water every now and then, even before feeling thirsty to avoid dehydration. You should still carry some light winter clothing just in case.
It took us around 2 hours(don't exactly remember) from Interlaken to Kleine Scheidegg via Grindelwald and then from Kleine Scheidegg to Jungfrau. We had spent almost 3 to 4 hours there including visiting the ice sculptures in the ice palace adjacent to the train station.
Have a great vacation.
