    My DS ended up having 2 different bands he had his that was put on straight after birth & then another band with a different baby's name on his ankle & the nurse asked me why I had someone else's baby I had to explain that I didn't that he was mine & the band on his wrist was put on straight away& ankle later when we were moved to our room thankfully the other babies band was a female baby & they realised I was telling the truth & fixed DS band to sway he was mine.

    At my hospital they are double tagged and have a sticker on their back. They are also given a labelled bassinet for their stay.
    There are microchips (or something like that) in the labels so no one can leave the ward with a baby without the alarms going off.
    As for a switched at birth situation I have no idea how I'd cope (especially if I didn't approve of the way the other parents treat their kids). I could even see myself getting into a fair bit of trouble if they drank a lot or were abusive in any way.

    I dunno, depends which baby slept better.

    (Kidding!)

    I have a vague recollection of a situation like this happening in the US and it ended up that the families decided to buy 2 houses next door to each other so they could both keep their child but have regular contact with their bio child.

    I found both my babies very distinguishable and took a lot of notice of the details of them in case I needed to ID them. DS was a massive baby with a blonde comb-over and DD had a pixie ear and a mullet. Classy.

    My stepmum was GIVEN the wrong baby, she told them "no this is not my baby" and they insisted it was "Look, baby Ray, your baby" Um, no, her surname was WRAY, and her baby was NOT a boy! LOL

    My mum was given the wrong baby when she left hospital as well ( this was in the 70,s!) I was bald and fair skinned and they gave her a dark haired baby with olive skin ! She started getting upset saying that's not my baby and the nurse kept trying to put this other baby in her arms - then they heard another woman screaming saying where's my baby as they were trying to give her me! Apparently they were getting us both ready to go home and cut our ID tags off
    and just didn't pay attention! When I had DS the midwives in my hospital when I was telling them this story said that's why they leave the tags on the mums and babies - apparently they never used to

    I thought this thread was about the tv show. I love that show. Lol.

    At our hospital they put 2 bands on them. 1 on each foot and they fall off the whole time. I don't know if they have a nursery either because my babies stayed with me.

    If they did get switched I would keep the one I raised but still have a relationship with the bio. I would be so upset about it though.

    There is a nursery, but it's mainly used for prem bubs. You can put bub in there while you have a shower, but otherwise bub is to stay with you.
    Oh ok. My hospital didn't have one. You had to have someone look after your baby to go down to the showers and toilets. I thought they may have been a thing of the past.

    I'd keep the child I raised. What is biological in the scheme of things? A loving family comes in all shapes and sizes, and people adopt/foster and love their kids just as much all the time.

    I would probably want to have some type of relationship with the bio child, like an aunty type thing.
