A mother has denied murdering her two-year-old son who was allegedly submerged in the bath.
Natalie Steele, 31, pleaded not guilty on Monday to the murder of her son, Reid.
She appeared before Cardiff Crown Court via video-link.
Reid died at University Hospital of Wales in Cardiff on 12 August after being found critically injured at a house in Bridgend, South Wales.
An inquest heard he was found unconscious on the bathroom floor by his grandmother after allegedly being submerged in bath water.
In a tribute published after his death in August, Reid's family said: “He was a super, super-happy, gorgeous, wonderful and intelligent little boy who lit up everyone's lives.
“He loved the garden and the beach, picking raspberries and going for walks collecting shells.
“He was a very chatty little boy and would happily speak to anyone.”
A further case management hearing will take place on 25 February next year, with a trial provisionally listed to begin on 3 May and expected to last about seven days.
Judge Michael Fitton QC remanded Steele, from Broadlands, Bridgend, into custody.
He told her: “Thank you very much for your co-operation today and I have noted you have been listening carefully.
“The next hearing will be on 25 February and the trial date will be confirmed shortly.
“You will be remanded into custody and I will extend the custody time limit until 16 May.”
