You will get much faster performance using the viewfinder instead of LiveView. You can also get more stable camera position using the viewfinder. This will allow you to reduce camera shake, which can be an issue at slower shutter speeds.

You can get very good prints at ISO 800 and probably at 1600 with the D3200. The D3200 sensor is one of the better ones for higher ISO.

My suggestion is to set your ISO to 1600, and then play with your aperture settings in typical lighting conditions and see what kind of shutter speeds you get.

You will need shutter speed of 1/200 sec or higher to stop all the motion on those little waving baby hands! If the child is still, you can use much lower.
