Although you can use ICOCA card on Osaka subway, it is not sold at subway stations. You can get one at any JR station, including Kansai airport.

Your 3-year-old niece doesn't need a card, infants under 6-years-old travel for free.

IC cards (ICOCA, Pasmo, Suica) in Japan can be used in any region in Japan. In Kansai region you can use an ICOCA card for all transportation in Osaka and Kyoto, and to travel between nearby cities: Osaka, Kyoto, Kobe, Nara.

You can find more information about IC cards in this article: https://www.japanstation.com/japans-prepaid-transportation-cards-ic-cards/
