    Mother given wrong baby to breast feed

    A hospital worker has been sacked in Massachusetts for giving a newborn baby to the wrong mother for breast-feeding.

    Officials at Winchester Hospital, near Boston, said the mistake was ''terrible" and ''unacceptable", reports the Boston Globe.

    The sister-in-law of the woman said the child she was given nursed with far greater vigour and appeared to have longer hair than her son.

    The woman alerted a hospital nurse, the sister-in-law said.

    ''The nurse took the baby from her arms, looked at the tags and said: "Oops, this isn't the right baby", " she added.

    Hospital spokesman Mark Whitney said doctors did not anticipate any health problems for either the baby or the woman.

    ''It's a terrible thing for both of the families involved," Whitney said. ''I don't think we can apologise enough to the families involved.

    With all due respect; I don't see this as such a tragedy. I would be a little upset.
    Just thank GOD that she didn't go home with the little one.
