A Queensland woman who accidentally ran over her infant son at a funeral south of Brisbane has spoken out about the grief their family is going through.

Seven-month-old Darcy Thompson was in a pram hit by a car driven by his mother Danielle as she was reversing on St Pauls Drive, Woodridge, just before 2pm on Friday afternoon.

He was rushed to Brisbane's Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in a serious condition but died a short time later.

In an article published in the Sunday Mail, Danielle describes the happy Christmas the family celebrated, which was overshadowed by tragedy just days later.

"We have lost our son, Darcy Alexander, our precious, beautiful, bubbly, intelligent, generous, loving baby far, far, far too soon and we will be forever the poorer whilst heaven will be more the richer for his presence," she wrote.

"We miss him with every fibre of our beings, and whilst grief in its many forms, ebbs and flows, the memories of our beautiful boy will be etched in our hearts for our lifetimes until we meet him again in Paradise."

"Darcy, we love you infinitely, we miss you utterly, and our hearts ache for you."

Queensland Police are investigating the incident but say no charges are expected to be laid.

"The investigations are ongoing but it's unlikely they're going to charge a mother over something like this," a police spokeswoman said on Saturday.

Senior Sergeant Tony Jackson on Friday said the incident was sobering.

"It's a terrible tragedy and a timely reminder for parents who have children to ensure they know exactly where they are."
