>> Also if I dont buy our Jungfrauch ticket in advance then will it not get full? I am travelling in Jul 2018 which is peak season.
As you are aware, July is peak period for the Jungfraujoch, and it will be extremely busy. If I were to do that trip in July, I think I would make a reservation. You would most likely get up there eventually without a reservation, especially if you started out early in the day, but might have to wait a long time in a queue.
Reservations are separate from tickets, and are only available for the final sector of the trip, from Kleine Scheidegg to the Jungfraujoch, and must be made for a return journey. This then commits you to a particular train both up and back. A return reservation will cost CHF 10, and is not for a particular seat, but for the "reserved seats" carriage, which is separate from the carriages for people without reservations. There will be signs to direct you to the appropriate carriages depending on whether or not you have a reservation.
Your child will not need a ticket, but if you make reservations, you will also need to make (and pay for) a reservation for your child, otherwise they cannot occupy a seat in the reserved seats carriage.
Reservations - once made - are not refundable and can't be exchanged for another date. So don't buy it any earlier than the day before, after checking the weather forecast and satisfying yourself that the weather will be clear. You can get reservations from any staffed railway station in the Jungfrau Region, e.g. Wengen, Grindelwald.
