2 nights in FCR is good. For the little one to enjoy the various activities there.

There is a famous museum at TC. Nice for little ones to go. But may be too young to understand.

Hi, I'm not an expert, just sharing as I'm also going in Dec, with my 3yrs old :)

D1 6pm land, about 8pm then can reach XMD. With <2yrs old, you can't do much plus next day still need to travel south. Recommend to stay in Taoyuan.

D2/D3 according to feedback by TW drivers, not worth to stay overstay, day tour good enough. Myself I originally plan overnight but change after taking into consideration various drivers comment.
