If the rest of the family/group are experienced wilderness campers/backbackers/paddlers, it could work out great. But I'd do a test run car camping first.
A great suggestion someone once made on this forum was for families with small kids to camp for 1-3 nights at Washington Harbor (near Windigo). There are more amenities there, and you might be able to get a shelter.
We met a couple with kids aged about 9 months and 3 years on IR a few years ago. They had backpacked the length of the island. The dad said that the trip was a mix of wonderful and horrible.
