Meanwhile, 34-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.
Now the kids’ grandad has recalled the moment he was told of their injuries.
He told YorkshireLive: “My wife woke me up yesterday morning.
“Her brother had been in touch to say ‘something has happened to the grandchildren’.
“We are all in shock, really shocked. I saw the little one yesterday at the hospital in Leeds and gave him a cuddle.”
His wife added: “We are still all in shock. The children are OK, they’re recovering.
“As long as they’re OK, that’s all that matters.”
Terrified neighbours yesterday told of shock after hearing screams coming from the home.
Natalia Skorek, 23, who lives a few doors away from the address, said: “My mum heard some screaming around 7am.
“But we thought it was the neighbours on the other side because they have kids and sometimes hear them shouting.
“So we didn’t think anything of it.
“It was only later we found what had happened.”
Another neighbour, who didn’t wish to be named, said the woman had lived at the address with her husband for around two years and they had three children.
She said: “I think the husband is a taxi driver.
“One of the children is just a few months old, the other two are older.”
Detective Chief Inspector Sam Freeman said: “We continue to carry out extensive enquiries into this incident which resulted in three children suffering serious injuries this morning.
“A woman continues to be treated for injuries and remains under arrest in hospital.
“Based on our investigations so far, we are not seeking anyone else in connection with what has taken place.”
He added: “Officers continue to support the family involved at what is clearly a dreadful time for them.
“I would like to remind residents that this case involves very young children and ask that their privacy is respected and members of the public avoid unhelpful speculation which can only increase distress for the family involved.”
