Might this child be one of the six prematurely deceased children of Swedish noble Carl Gustav Wrangel? Namely Hannibal Gustav Wrangel who died when only two years old. It would make sense from the dates on this link here where it says: “Hannibal Gustaf Wrangel, Born in Stockholm, on 1641 to Carl Gustaf Wrangel and Anna Margareta Von Haugwitz. He passed away on 1643 in Sweden.
NB: Other websites name the year 1646 as the year of his death. The child on the above painting looks much more like a two-year-old than a five-year-old to me. And on the painting it actually says 1643. And on the Swedish Wikipedia page of Carl Gustav Wrangel the date of death is also 1643. Hannibal seems to have been the first born. And according to this German website this is Hannibal as a one-year-old (could not find a higher resolution anywhere):
