Ok so I love TLC and am always watching that or food network. Tonight I was flipping through and noticed that they had a show called Id kill for a baby. This is a show about women who kidnap babies and even pregnant women because they want babies of their own so badly. Anyone seen this. Its about a year old. So I am sure some of you have seen it before. It is really sad. There is one woman whos daughter was abducted from the hospital at three weeks old and that was in 1987 and they still have failed to locate the baby or the kidnapperSeptember 13, 2007 at 12:17 am #940695
Someone did this in NYC just after my son was born in 1985. Just walked out of the hospital with the baby. I don’t think they ever found the child. I felt so bad for the mother, she was on the local news and so distraught. I was just crying right along with her at the idea.
Security in most places is much better now, but some of these people are real psychos. Now they don’t wait until the baby is born, they just kill the mom and take the baby.September 13, 2007 at 12:32 am #940700
my mom said alot of babies were kidnapped when/where i was born. at our hospital they have the monitoring bracelets & have completely done away with the nursery, so the baby is with you the whole time. the nurses do take the baby in the middle of the night for a half an hour to bathe them, then they’re back. i knew the nurses from school, so they actually kept izabell for a few extra hours so we could get more sleep. If i hadn’t known them, i don’t think i would’ve let them take her, even though you can’t get within 100 feet of the elevator bc of the bracelet.September 13, 2007 at 11:56 am #940779
I watched that show last night! Scary!!
But I would hope that now with all the security it is harder to kidnap babies from the hospital. I still worry about my “big girls” getting kidnapped even from thier beds at night. I watch too many crime shows at night i think! But it is very scary!September 13, 2007 at 12:20 pm #940784
Wow that’s so sad, it must happen more than we think for them to make a show out of it..September 18, 2007 at 3:05 pm #941765
That is such a huge fear of many soon-to-be or brand new moms….And thats so sadSeptember 18, 2007 at 3:11 pm #941766
Ditto Ollie..this is a show I would not watch. I’m already freaked out at night and lock everything up.September 18, 2007 at 3:18 pm #941769

We had the same situation at the hospital where our son was born (I think most hopsitals are like this. My SIL is a NICU nurse in a small town and they have it there, too). Anyway, as an added security, all nurses/personnel who are allowed to “touch” a baby have special badges (they’re pink–everyone elses are white) so you know if the person coming is is “supposed” to take your baby or not. The only time our son left our room was when he went to have his circumcision done–other than that, all the monitoring, bathing, testing, etc was done in our room.September 18, 2007 at 3:21 pm #941771
That is so scary! When I had all of my kids I never wanted them to leave my room while in the hospital. The last one was born in a hospital that has a safety measure where mommy and baby where matching bracelets that play a lullaby only when the correct bracelets are matched up. They checked them every time they brought him to me. The bracelet also had an alarm on it so if you were with the baby and ANY door opened that you were too close to an alarm went off. My DH accidentally set one off as he was walking out the door because the nurse was wheeling the baby to the nursery and he was following too close behind her when he opened the door. Right around the time he was born last year a women in another state had a baby girl and one day another women just walked right into her house, tried to slit her throat, left her to die and walked right out of her house with the baby. I was afraid to even put a sign on my front lawn welcoming the baby home! People are crazy!September 18, 2007 at 3:24 pm #941773
I heard about that….I know a lady that was from that area…I’m just glad the baby was found and mum was ok.September 19, 2007 at 2:06 pm #942003
My hospital has a monitoring bracelet security system put into place. If you go too far from the “Baby Place” (as they call it) it will set off an alarm throughout the hospital and lockdown all the doors and elevators.July 29, 2010 at 4:20 am #1043791
