The person who directly heard what she said (I'm assuming Darling?) needs to inform the child services in your area. If it was a text message or email that needs to be kept as evidence.
I know getting a government agency involved can be VERY dicey for both people with mental illness and poly people, but bringing a child into it IS NOT OKAY, and from what you've said Chatty is unstable enough to be a threat to herself and others.
Darling may also want to inform the child's father if that would be a good immediate resource, as agencies can be slow moving and ultimately unable to do anything if there's no physical evidence or direct, immediate threat.
