Society has degenerated to where we are today, with baby-napping being a very real scenario in our hospitals. Exhausted parents who have just undergone the birth of their child together need to get some quality sleep as well, which is where the hospital has to play their part in ensuring the safety of their patients. Babies will soon be equipped with anti-theft alarms, in Norway at least. After all, their country has experienced several instances of infant kidnappings before, so as the old adage goes, “an ounce of prevention is better than cure”. A bracelet containing a microchip will be attached to the infant’s ankle, while a similar bracelet is hooked up to the mother’s wrist. Whenever both bracelets are separated by a preset distance, an alarm will ring.
