The infant, Brynlee Hastings, later died at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
The death resulted in the arrest of daycare worker Amy Rogers. Oxford police investigators charged her with culpable negligence manslaughter.
The lawsuit claims Rogers flipped the infant onto her stomach and pushed the child's head into the cushioned mat she was lying on.
Brynlee Hastings suffocated, according to the lawsuit.
The lawsuit says the daycare's management knew about Rogers' alleged history of negligence and did nothing.
The parents are seeking compensatory and punitive damages in an amount determined by a jury.
