This is such an interesting thread!

My baby's mine and dh's - born at home, so no chance of a mix up!

He was almost snatched by a lady shortly after being born. The "nurse" came to the room to "take the babies to be fed" (MIL shared the room with another mother). MIL kept DH with her because she was breastfeeding, but the other mother gave her baby up. The baby never came back, an it turned out the woman didn't work for the hospital. She snatched the woman's baby! I'm pretty sure the baby was found, but I'd have to find the article again.

How terrifying! This thread is both funny and makes me appreciate the stupid hugs anklet, wrist bands, and security doors that I began to despise by the end of our 2.5 week nicu stay.

They interviewed the family, the dad had passed away but I think the mom was still alive when the story was produced. Back when it happened women had "twilight sleep" births, and I think the mom hemorrhaged after birth and this doctor saved her life. So it was several days before the mom was well enough to be cogent. By that time the families had both accepted their babies, so it would have come out if they switched back. It was a very small town and the dad felt it would ruin the doctor if they told anyone. The mom still sounds bitter 40 years later, it's a very sad story.
That's insane. Poor woman. I'm going to listen to the story when I'm home.

I know my oldest is definitely ours. She was one of two babies at our hospital when she was born, is nearly clear she's so pale, and weighed literally over double that of the tiny 5lb mixed baby who was also there.
