Babies switched at birth

Babies switched at birth are babies who, because of either error or malice, are interchanged with each other at birth or very soon thereafter, leading to the babies being unknowingly raised by parents who are not their biological parents. The occurrence is rarely discovered in real life, but is much more common as a plot device in novels and films, such as the TV series Switched at Birth and Autumn in My Heart.
