I'm so sorry for your loss.
I would go, take the baby, and sit near a door, or at the end of on aisle. You're not "fleeing the chapel," you just calmly walk out for a few minutes. It's no big deal.
The more relaxed you are about taking your baby, the more relaxed your baby will be while you are there.
I think that most people like seeing a baby at a funeral. It was wonderful to be reminded that life goes on and it starting anew, even during a time of loss. Your baby's smiles and coos will most likely be a blessing to others who are there.
but everything has pros and cons
