Detectives charged the grandmother with attempted murder and serious assault yesterday, with police saying the boy's mother was 'distraught'.

Police said the baby's mother was woken to the sound of his cries at about 6.30am Tuesday, and found the baby in his cot with a female family member in the room and of a large knife nearby.

The baby is in hospital in a serious but stable condition after undergoing emergency surgery.

A 64-year-old woman, who is known to the child, is now assisting officers with their inquiries.

She sat motionless as her matter was mentioned.

The woman, who can not be named for legal reasons, was silent and stared down during a brief hearing at the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning.
