The baby girl was taken to hospital to be checked over by doctors.
This is the latest in a string of tragedies over the Christmas and New Year period.
Ruby Love, who had three children, was hit over the head and strangled before being dumped in a London canal on Christmas Day.
Miss Treloar’s neighbours dialled 999 shortly after 7am yesterday after hearing her scream ‘please, please, please’ as she was manhandled into a grey Fiat Stilo before it sped away.
Her body was found an hour-and-a-half later a mile away, off Homerton High Street.

Neighbour Robert Mead said he heard young mother Kirsty being dragged to the car early yesterday morning.
He said: 'I heard a window or bottle smash. There was a commotion and shouting.
'I heard the woman scream, 'Please, please, no, please', a car door slam shut, and then the screeching of tyres.'
A woman living close to the three-storey home described how she was woken at around 5.30am before hearing 'a female sounding extremely distressed'.
The woman, 45, who did not give her name, added: 'I don't know what woke me up.
'It was some time at around six or just after that I heard a noise. I thought it might be foxes fighting which can sound quite human.
'Then I thought, No, it's definitely not, it sounded like a young woman in distress. It was very short-lived and stopped quite abruptly.
'It sounded like she was a bit hysterical.'
Terry Tundervary, 58, a builder, said: 'They seemed to be a very friendly family. I used to say hello to the girl.
'If it's the girl I think it is, she's got a little baby.

'She was a pretty girl, a very normal girl, the whole family was very friendly although I didn't know their names. I just knew them to say hello to as neighbours do.
'I believe the girl's dad, he may have been her step-dad, came from the US or Canada. I think he was a binman for Hackney Borough Council.'
Retired couple Mary and David Ward, both in their 70s, said they were shocked to hear what had happened at the property so close to their home.
Mr Ward, 70, added: 'It's a terrible shock. We couldn't believe all this happened, it's a real tragedy.

'The area is pretty good really, we've lived here nearly 30 years and it's the first time anything like this has occurred.
'We have never had any trouble - we didn't know the family but the young girl seemed to be very nice when we saw her to say hello to.'
Another neighbour in Brownlow Road, who did not want to be named, said he heard what sounded like a window breaking early this morning and a person shouting 'Please, please, please'.
A tarpaulin covered one of the ground-floor windows and police remained at the scene last night.
Forensics officers were also examining Ryder Mews where the car was found. The area was cordoned off with police tape.
