Perfect 1st animal

Buying a house and soon after will be getting my daughter her first pet. Was wondering what a good first pet is that is also great to be around a newborn. We are thinking a puppy or a kitten but I am a HUGE worry wart and worry about the baby getting hurt. Any suggestions? maybe an older dog or cat first??
