This has been confirmed by the hospital's Chief Executive.  The babies had been taken from the special care nursery for feeding and a mix up probably occurred when the name bracelet wasn't checked and they were placed in the wrong cots.

The hospital is deeply apologetic. Family members are undergoing counseling.
