Just so ya know, This thread is 4 years old.. But, If anybody out there is asking this question and happens to see this thread, I would recommend an English setter. My uncle has a few of them and they love his 2 year old daughter and they are soooo gentle with her (Even when she isnt exactly gentle with them!)
