Baby Mix-Up At Norton Hospital

(LOUISVILLE, November 20th, 2003, 5 p.m.) -- Imagine being the mother of a newborn and discovering you've just breast fed the wrong baby -- and even worse, another mother has breast fed your baby.

That's what happened to two mothers at Norton Hospital earlier this week. According to the hospital, a nurse accidentally laid the babies in the wrong cribs in the nursery, then failed to check the babies' ID bracelets before handing them over to their respective mothers for feeding.

The switch lasted about 90 minutes, but because a feeding was involved, Norton is taking every precaution.

The hospital says neither family wanted to comment on camera about the ordeal, but were quite upset over what happened.
