Years before Lacey Spears poisoned her own son, three children became sick while under the mommy blogger's care, a new book claims.

In the bombshell release, My Sweet Angel, author John Glatt alleged that after digging deep into the 27-year-old's past, he discovered that three kids had developed serious ear infections after being under Spears' watch.

Her son, Garnett, also suffered an infection at the time, Glatt claimed.

According to the author, the other children began to improve as soon as their mothers, who Spears had befriended, cut them off from her care.

As reported, Spears was very active on social media in the days leading up to Garnett's death, chronicling his declining health in great detail. According to prosecuting lawyers, the boy's sodium levels rose to a dangerous level with no medical explanation. His condition worsened to the point of a swollen brain, seizures and, ultimately, death.

The single mother, who moved from Chestnut Ridge, New York, to Kentucky after her son passed away, reportedly administered toxic levels of salt through a feeding tube. Evidence in the case also showed that she had researched "dangers of high sodium" several days before Garnett was admitted to hospital.

As for Glatt's shocking book, Spears' defense attorneys David Sachs and Stephen Riebling dismissed his claims, with Riebling telling People magazine: "These allegations are inaccurate and very new, which leads us to think there's nothing to them."

"They certainly sent an army of investigators to Alabama to talk to everyone and anyone," Sachs added, adding that neither he nor Riebling has read Glatt's book.
