Taylor Bush said she realized something was wrong when she left the Nana's Home Daycare on Giddings Road in Cleveland with little girl Di'Yanni Griffin.
'So I go to walk out the door and I close the door behind me so I'm like, 'Hey, mama baby.' I realize her neck is, just, she's just lifeless,' Bush cried to Fox 8.
Bush said she ran back inside, started CPR and asked them to call 911.
The daycare's owner, Danielle Townsend, was not present at the time but said the baby had been sick in the days prior and she had recommended Bush take the infant to hospital.
Bush's sons were also being cared for at the property and they were asleep at the time.
'My sister calls me and says, "Call her mother",' Townsend told Fox 8. 'I said, "Well, her mother just texted me; what's wrong?" She said, "The baby is breathing fast".'
The identity of the sister is not clear but Bush said in Wednesday post that Townsend's sister was present when she came for the child.
According to Bush's social media she is a mother-of-four who works at Checkers and Rally's fast food restaurant. The licensed Type B care provider she left Di'Yanni participates in a subsidized program.
The owner – who says she has worked in daycares for 15 years and has operated her own for three years - told Fox that no one called 911 when they noticed the heavy breathing from the infant.
A June 3 inspection noted that Nana's Home Daycare had 'unsanitary conditions', 'hazardous conditions in the outdoor play area,' and didn't have an on-site first-aid kit.
Ohio Department of Job and Family Services website said that the substitute carer does not 'have a current certification in Infant and Child CPR'.
County JFS agencies are responsible for inspections of in-home child care, with oversight by ODJFS,' the agency said in a statement to FOX 8. 'The county agency is conducting an investigation and actively working with child protective services and law enforcement. ODJFS would make the final determination on whether to suspend Nana's Home Daycare license if the county agency recommends suspension.
The cause of death had not yet been determined on Friday.
'The case as it stands right now is listed as Probable Natural,' Cleveland Division of Police spokeswoman Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia told USA TODAY.
'The investigation is with the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office and in the event that it's determined that the baby died under suspicious circumstances, our investigators will resume the investigation. So for now, we wait for the ME's determination on cause of death.'
Bush started a GoFundMe page on Thursday as she asked for help raising $3,000 for a funeral.
'I'm trying to raise money towards memorial services for my beautiful baby girl Di'Yanni Griffin, I just want my daughter to have a proper nice burial,' Bush wrote on the website.
She planned a balloon release ceremony in memory of her daughter on June 22.
Townsend posted on Facebook: 'Hey everyone if you know me y'all know dam well that whole f**king story is fucked up in a lie I will never hurt or harm any one child in no the child did not pass in my daycare that young grl Taylor Bush let her Owen child suffer they baby was sick everyone know this is what I always wanted to do my Dream I love and care for any body kids.'
