Detectives were called to investigate the case after Hartman turned up at a Melbourne fire station April 6.
Hartman, who brought her unresponsive baby to the station, told paramedics the child was suffering from unidentified medical problems.
Paramedics determined the child was suffering a ‘heat-related illness’ and rushed the baby to Holmes Regional Medical Center for further treatment.
