Present Situation Of Mother Baby Pairing

Mother Baby Pairing This sure sounds unbelievable, but reportedly, there were 20,000 cases of mother- newborn baby mismatches in one year in US hospitals alone! The main problem is, that all newborn babies look alike (at least to many people including me).It is difficult to distinguish one bundled baby from another, especially in a hospital wards where there may be tens of these “bundles of joy” kept together for a bath or whatever.

In many cases if the mother has undergone a caeserean section, then she is likely to be under some kind of anaesthesia. If a nurse carries away a newborn baby for its bath and then gets confused herself when she is to bring it back to the mother, she may put the baby in the wrong crib. Hence the need for an effective pairing system between babies and their mothers.
