Day Trip from Calgary?

Myself, husband and baby (6 months) are planning a trip to the Rockies in a couple of weeks (mid August).

We are spending 3 nights in Calgary, 3 nights in Banff, 3 nights in Jasper and 1 night in Edmonton.

Waterton Lakes looking absolutely gorgeous. Do you think a day trip is feasible? I saw another post about not doing it in the Winter, but do you think it would be worth it in the summer time?

If yes, any suggestions?

It's 2 hours and 10 minutes each way, so it'd be a bit of a long day with a youngster, but I'd say more than doable with some patience....

It would be a long day, but on the other hand, Waterton is definitely worth a visit.
