Having a child and not wanting to be delayed changes this calculus. What is the next best connection? If the timing works better and it does not cost appreciably more, why not book it and take your time and book the seats you want?

Either way, if you do misconnect, it will be LH's duty to rebook you and to take care of its duty of care, e.g. hotel & meals (if necessary).. The duty of care applies no matter the reason for the delay, so there are least no financial issues in a delay. But, as you point out, unles you get very lucky, the seating on your rebooked flight may be lousy.
