A Bradenton Beach woman pleaded no contest to culpable negligence, a second-degree misdemeanor.
Phaedra Christina Brace, 31, was arrested last November at her home in Bradenton Beach.
Bradenton Beach police said Brace left her child in the care of an intoxicated man, showing willful neglect.
She initially was charged with child neglect, a felony, and was scheduled for a jury trial.
Brace entered her plea at the Manatee County Judicial Center in Bradenton.
