I would sue the hospital if it were me. Imagine if they didn't find out years down the road.

When your baby is born weighing 6 pounds, 8 ounces, but a few hours later she already weighs 8 pounds, 4 ounces, something's up.

That's what happened to Argentine lawyer Maria Lorena Gerbeno, who told doctors at the Sanatorio Argentino hospital in San Juan that something didn't seem right about the newborn that was handed to her to take home.

Doctors insisted it was her baby, but she remained suspicious for three weeks, at which point she returned with the baby for a routine checkup.

At that checkup, is where she met Veronica Tejada, a fellow new mom who had given birth to a baby girl on the same day Gerbeno had. After chatting, the women suspected their babies had been switched, which was confirmed after Gerbeno demanded a DNA test. "I spent three weeks with a baby [who] was not my daughter, but I gave her all my love and knew that the other mom would do the same," Gerbeno told local station C5N. The hospital says it is trying to, "clarify what happened"; both women are considering legal action.

The women, or at least one of them, should have insisted on DNA testing before she/they left the hospital!
wow!! when my kids were born, the hospital was super secure. our kids never left our sight... they got their shots, their first bath, measurements taken... all in the suite my wife gave birth in i had a bracelet that had my name and my wife's name... i had to show the bracelet and my drivers license before i was even let into the hospital (the restricted area part anyway), then i had to show it again to get any further than the waiting area on the maternity floor...

i kinda thought things like this were a thing of the past... i suppose not everybody is a lucky as my wife and i were!

Depends if the nurses on duty care about their jobs and the babies!

We've had several cases of babies being kidnapped in the past few years alone!

As I've said before, people don't give a shit anymore

Very sad in both cases

That has happened a few times, Pyramid!

The families didn't find out until they were teens and in their early 20s

I cannot imagine the feelings of the parents and the children
