The baby boy suffered life-threatening injuries and is now in specialized care.
Police charged 26-year-old Crystal Dorothy of Old saybrook with risk of injury to a minor, providing a false statement, interfering with an officer and conspiracy charges in the case.
They are seeking 31-year-old Keith Loftus of Deep River in connection with the case.
