TGV Paris to Nice 1st class travelling with a toddler

We are 4 adults and one 3 year old. I understand that kids can travel for free. But I am wondering if it will be comfortable for all of us with just 4 seats (facing each other with a table).

Or just should we just get 5 to be safe ?

Travel is from Paris to Nice on a weekday afternoon.

Don't waste your money on first class: you get little extra space.

If there are spare seats, nobody will object if the child sits in one. But the car may well be full, so how would your party feel about having a toddler on various knees for 5h40? Your decision.

For the best prices, book soon after tickets go on sale, 3 months before travel, from www.capitainetrain.com

There are special family zones on the trains. Check them out.

Sometimes 1st class is cheaper than 2nd class.

It may also depend how physically big you and your child are. On most TGV seats (all TGV seats?) the central arm rest can be pulled fully up to effectively make a single bench type seat, albeit with a join in the middle.
