My oldest went to 2 funerals when he was around 15 months old. One was for his great grandma and there were about a dozen of us there and it was graveside only *hubby has a very small family). He ran around, giggled, etc and everyone enjoyed having him there-of course great grandma had lived a long life and it wasn't like it was some unexpected death. The second one was for my mom's cousin's daughter who was in her early 20s. Even though her parents were extremely upset at the sudden death, they were glad to see him-they said it helped them think back to when their daughter was little, they liked seeing such a happy guy, etc.
I think it comes down to what YOU want. Like mentioned, funerals are not some kind of invitation only event and I'm sure most people have the common sense that if hey brought their child and the child becasme disruptive to leave the room.
