Baby had nine ribs broken.
Belfast Crown Court heard that when the 32-year-old Belfast woman took her 11-month-old son to hospital in January last year, she initially told doctors he had fallen off the sofa.
However, prosecution QC Liam McCollum said doctors did not accept that his injuries had been caused accidentally and the mother later confessed that she had lost her temper and shook him for around 20 seconds.
The woman, who is pregnant again and cannot be identified to protect her son, pleaded guilty to inflicting grievous bodily harm and willful neglect of her child between 1 December 2003 and 8 January 2004.
