Authorities were called to the hospital and the mother of the child, Jessica Hunt, was arrested and charged with cruelty to children and violation of probation.
Hunt, a mother of four, has a long history of arrest including shoplifting, failure to appear, and violation of probation.
Hunt is being held without bond in the Gwinnett County Detention Center after her first appearance in court Wednesday afternoon.
No incident reports were released by Gwinnett County Police Department to the public however an investigation is underway.
