Sorry for your loss especially during this time. I wonder if helping your daughter remember the good things about your husband so that she doesn't truly forget him. In addition, I would ask if you have sought out grief counseling, this is a traumatic and devastating event.
Your daughter may also benefit from play therapy depending upon her age to help process her confusion and what that looks like so that you both can process, grieve, and remember the good.
You may also try just taking long hot baths and allowing yourself to "feel" the emotions and soaking up the beautiful gifts that you have to remember him.

Again, I am so sorry for your loss.

Have you sought any grief counseling?
Why will the baby be confused?
My advice is to take the time to mourn. Get some counseling for yourself and your daughter to help you both through the grief process.
Sorry for your loss but you will get through this in your own time.
