If you pick up "The Canadian Rockies Trail Guide" by Patton/Robinson, it includes only official trails, which are all pretty well-kept with decent footing and no scrambling.
What constitutes 'not too physically demanding' is up to you.
It's not crazy to go backpacking. I take it the kid will be small enough to be comfortable in a front-carrier that would let you still wear a backpack? Other than adding baby supplies, that doesn't actually change things too much. Just pick a trail that gives you shorter/easier days as needed.

Waterton is all dayhiking, no backpacking, but for dayhiking, I'd highly recommend it. It has piles of short-to-medium trails, as well as longer ones for those who want. It's also stunningly beautiful.
