Thomas Haining, 20, is alleged to have repeatedly inflicted blunt force trauma to little Mikayla Haining's head and body, leaving her so severely injured that she died.
He is accused of murdering the baby at her home in Mackay Road, Inverness, last year.
The alleged offences happened between the day she was born on May 17, 2017, and June 8, 2017 when she died.
He denies murdering Mikayla.
Defending Haining, Shelagh McCall QC entered a not guilty plea on his behalf when he appeared in the dock at the High Court in Glasgow on Wednesday.
Lady Rae adjourned the case until February.
