Its happened twice to me lol. One lady didn't ask, just put the baby in my arms and said she had to pee.

I can't think of a time that it has happened to me.  

I never left my children with a stranger when they were babies (accept for hourly daycares on rare occasions) and would not with my grandbaby.  
When I say all of that, I mean I didn't just hand them off to some random stranger in McD's so I could use the restroom.  That's crazy to me.

Nooooo and No. Once time a stranger wanted to hold my baby,  I felt like there was something very suspicious about it.  This is when there were alot of kidnappings like that in Los Angeles where we happened to be.  I told her No and walked away.

Yep and we did not even speak the same language! I about crapped when she did it. I was sitting in the back the back of the church why my daughter was there for a friend and the lady just came in sat by me and took their coats off, got up looked at me and handed me the baby! She came back a few minutes later with a headband I am guessing it fell of on her way in but wish I would have know what the heck was going on. Lol

Haha! Mine was in a religious setting too, maybe that has something to do with it.

What got me was her family that she went and sat with after taking the baby back was only 6 rows infront of me so why hand your child to a stranger.. I am just glad she did not start crying. Lol
