Should I skip Nuwara Eliya and spend another night at Dambulla?

#2 doesn't look at all what you want! Some places suggested are tourist traps and time wasters. Not good with a child!

You didn't mention what month you will be visiting. Weather may possibly be significant when visiting Sigiriya etc.

Your plan looks OK with one night in Dambulla/Sigiriya, three in Kandy and two in Negombo although just a concern about driving to Nuwara Eliya from Kandy and back as it is about 80km each way and it could take two hours or more each way. You could stay a night there if you are really keen and drop one from Kandy or Negombo.

Another option : You could spend two nights in Dambulla which would allow you to see maybe Polonnaruwa/Mihintale/ Anuradhapura if you are interested and that would also give a longer time in the same place for your child, for familiarity.

Two nights would probably be sufficient in Kandy to do what you have mentioned. [ Apart from the Nuwara Eliya visit] Then two nights in Negombo would allow you to relax a bit before flying out. Unless you have a specific reason for visiting Colombo on a day trip you might save yourself travel hassles - traffic etc as there really isn't anything much to recommend seeing or doing there, considering your circumstances.

Regarding Sigiriya: It would be tricky to climb past the Lion's Paws with a one year old.

Hope this helps
