Stacie Saggers, 34, returned to her Langwarrin home on Wednesday afternoon with police, before leaving with baskets of belongings.
Her son, Jaidyn Gomes, died at the home on Monday afternoon.
“I just want my baby back,” Ms Saggers told reporters.
“I miss him so much. I never hurt him. I never hurt my baby.”
Brendan Pallant, 32, has been charged with the toddler’s murder.
Mr Pallant did not appear in person for a hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday afternoon.
His lawyer did not make an application for bail, and he was remanded in custody to return to court in January.
Emergency services were called to the Potts Road home about 4:10pm following reports a child had been injured.
They were unable to revive the boy, and police arrested Mr Pallant and Ms Saggers at the scene.
Ms Saggers was released without charge and police said she was not believed to have been involved in the incident.
