The two were also given interim name suppression at a brief appearance at the Hastings District Court on Tuesday morning.
A 32-year-old woman was last Wednesday charged with wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, neglect and nine counts of assaulting a child.
A 27-year-old man is also charged with neglect, and with injuring with intent.

The charges relate to an incident in late January, 2020, where the boy was found critically injured at a rental property in Flaxmere.
He has made a remarkable recovery, but has suffered permanent brain damage.
The man and woman were both remanded without plea until their next appearance in July.
