They also appeared on petition alleging the supply of controlled drugs and Elaine Towns on a further allegation of possessing controlled drugs.
Neither accused made any plea or declaration and the case was continued for further examination.
John Towns was remanded in custody and Elaine Towns was released on bail.
The child was taken to Ninewells after an incident on Glamis Road shortly before midday last Friday.
It is understood the child’s injuries were not life-threatening.
