PALMETTO, GA (CBS46) -

Three people have waived their court hearings following their arrests in connection to a 13-month-old who ingested crack cocaine.

A Fulton County judge set bond at $30,000 for the toddler's mother, 17-year-old Andrica Daniel, the toddler's grandmother, 34-year-old Ebony Daniel, and Ebony Daniel's boyfriend, 22-year-old Charlie Martin, on Thursday morning.

Palmetto police said the toddler, Jay'von Daniel, ate the crack cocaine when he was in the care of Ebony Daniel and Martin Saturday at Martin's house on Elm Drive.

Jay'von was released from the hospital Monday.

Prior to her arrest, Andrica Daniel spoke to CBS Atlanta News about what happened.

"I had asked them to watch him while I took a shower," she said.

Andrica Daniel said when she got out of the shower, she knew something was wrong because Martin was upset.

"He went into the room and came right back out. He was like, 'Man shorty, what happened to my crack?' He was cussing me out like I took it," Andrica Daniel said.

Andrica Daniel said she didn't see Jay'von eat the crack-cocaine. But because she didn't want to take any chances, she rushed her son to the hospital.

"His blood pressure kept going up and down. He was throwing up," Andrica Daniel said. "They ran tests on his urine. He tested positive for crack-cocaine. That's how we know he ate it."

Martin and Ebony Daniel were arrested on Tuesday and charged with possession of cocaine, child cruelty and reckless conduct.

On Wednesday, police also charged Andrica Daniel with the same charges as her mother and Martin.

All three are expected back in court Aug. 9.

The toddler was placed in the care of the Division of Family and Children Services.
