Woman reveals her turmoil after her ex dropped off the wrong baby

Mother reveals her turmoil after her ex dropped off the WRONG baby to her home after taking care of his two sons by different women at the same time

  •  Mother of 17-month-old son revealed her ex dropped off the wrong child to her
  • Ex called Sean, has two sons born six-weeks apart and he dropped off wrong one
  • Added she wants to change her custody agreement so he doesn’t look after both at the same time 

A new mum has revealed her fury after her ex-partner who she shares custody with dropped off the wrong baby.

The anonymous woman, believed to be from the UK,  took to Reddit, to explain how she was in the middle of a work call when her son’s father dropped the 17-month old baby at her house.

As the baby was sleeping, she didn’t come to see him immediately, but 10 minutes later when the little boy started crying she made the discovery it wasn’t her baby. 

She said: ‘I immediately noticed that this was not my son, as my son has blue eyes, and this baby had green eyes.

‘Taking off the baby’s hat also showed dark blond hair, and not my son’s light brown hair.

‘I immediately called Sean, in full panic mode, telling him to bring me the correct child right this second.’

She went on to explain that her ex Sean had another baby who is just six-weeks younger than her son, who he had dropped off by mistake.

‘So this guy, “Sean”, and I have a… complex… history, but the important part of that history is that Sean got me and another woman, “Lydia”, pregnant at roughly the same time,’ she said.

‘Our sons are only about six weeks apart in age. Lydia’s son is currently just over 15 months, while mine is just under 17 months.

‘Lydia and I have identical custody agreements. We both had sole custody for the entire first year, with Sean only having visitation, and when both boys were a year old, it became 50/50 custody. 

‘Both myself and Lydia have our sons for the odd weeks, while Sean gets the even weeks.

‘This means Sean has both boys at the same time. He pushed for this, as he wanted a week on/week off from looking after kids. 

‘He also requested this so his sons could bond, but his primary motive was getting time off. 

When the poster called Sean telling him to return her baby to her, he was only 10 minutes away on route to Lydia’s to drop off the other child.

‘Jesus f***ing Christ it was the worst 10 minutes of my life but Sean came back smiling, carrying my son, and says in the most condescending tone of voice “see? He’s fine. No harm done”.

‘I told him that we are fixing this custody agreement. He is not having both boys alone again. He couldn’t tell his own sons apart, so the solution here is for him to not be in a position to confuse them.

‘I want to know that I have my child, not Lydia’s. I do not feel that this is a lot to ask for. I trusted that Sean, as a father, knew the difference between his children, which he clearly does not.’

But Sean thinks she’s being ‘unreasonable’ and doesn’t want to rearrange the custody agreement.  

‘Sean has said that I’m being unreasonable. Says it’s an easy mistake to make, and that there were times his parents brought home the wrong baby from nursery without a half sibling to excuse it, and that this was the first time it happened and the issue only lasted 10 minutes. 

‘He also says that I’ll be causing undue harm to all three guys in this situation, as the kids won’t get to bond with their half brother, and Sean won’t get any time to himself if he has Lydia’s son on even weeks and mine on odds, meaning that he’ll be more exhausted and it will decrease his income as he won’t be able to work overtime (which he currently does in his weeks without the boys).  

The mother split the views of many in the thread, with some saying she was acting irrationally, while others said her response was reasonable.

‘I wouldn’t be happy if I was in OP’s shoes. Would I threaten custody, probably not but it would be a conversation about if he can handle the two kids at the same time,’ said one. 

‘Sorry am I losing my mind here, how is she the devil in this situation?? Mans RETURNED THE WRONG BABY TO HER. He’s undeniably the a******, and she’s dead right for wanting to alter the custody agreement so he doesn’t pull this s***again,’ another added.

‘It’s a extreme reaction to a rather mundane problem. This was a accident that had no serious damage. Her child was safe for those 5-10 minutes with their father in a car. Once a mistake was realised he came right back. 

‘As the kids grow he will be able to differentiate naturally. This will be a non-issue within a matter of months with the current set up. Until then tie a ribbon on the baby’s hand or foot. Courts are even slower right now because of the pandemic so there is very little value to gain by changing it,’ wrote a third.
