A baby girl just two days shy of her first birthday was shot in the head and critically injured by a stray bullet on a Bronx street Wednesday night, police sources said.

The 11-month-old baby — who turns 1 on Friday — was sitting in the backseat of a car parked on Valentine Ave. near E. 198th St. in Bedford Park about 6:45 p.m., accompanied by her mother, when a gunman started shooting at someone nearby, police said.

The tot, who was shot in the left cheek, was intubated and rushed to St. Barnabas Hospital, then diverted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital Columbia, where she was in critical but stable condition. Police sources described the wound as life-threatening.
