(Scroll down for video) A baby was found to be very intoxicated and her mother is accused of giving her the alcohol.

The 13-month-old girl was taken to a hospital after she said that the child was not acting right, and now, the mother of that child is in trouble with the law.

Doctors discovered that the child had a blood alcohol level about three and a half times the legal limit for an adult to drive.

Police said that 26-year-old Jessica Bachmaier, was the only person who provided the baby with something to eat or drink, before taking her to the hospital.

According to the criminal complaint, detectives said she knowingly gave alcohol to her baby in her sippy cup.

At first, the mother blamed other people for giving her daughter the liquor. She said that a male friend was babysitting the child while she was at work.

However, after a month long investigation police determined that Bachmaier was the one who fed the baby a sippy cup full of vodka.

Bachmaier claimed that she gave her baby what she thought was a mixture of water and formula, but it turned out to be vodka.

When investigators had enough evidence against the mother they filed charges.

Bachmaier was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and providing alcohol to a minor. The baby was also removed from her custody.
