28-year-old Kenya Brown has been charged with risk of injury to children, drug possession and illegal possession of a gun.
Brown told investigators that her roommate was baby sitting her children Monday night when the incident happened.
The roommate, 24-year-old Leshonda Davis, was also arrested.
Authorities say they found a loaded revolver tucked inside a leather jacket hanging inside the closet of the infant's room.
Brown is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. She's scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 23.
The infant was released from the hospital Tuesday evening, police said.
