OMG Breastfeeding mix-up!

This sounds like an April Fool's joke, but it's a true story. It is unbelievable! I can't imagine a hospital doing this. What are the odds that there is a mix-up and the mother has a terminal, contagious illness. Unreal!

FROM NBC: A mix-up at a New Hampshire hospital has the parents of a newborn fearing for its life. A nurse at Portsmouth Regional Hospital gave a mother the wrong baby to

Now the parents of that baby are having it tested for hepatitis and HIV, since both can be transmitted through breastfeeding.

The hospital expressed regret and released this statement: "...We launched a full investigation and are taking steps to avoid a similar event from occurring in the future."

I would love to know the reputation of this hospital. I would guess the baby will be just fine, but I would still be more than furious if I were that baby's parents. We will have to wait and see.
