Fairies sometimes try to trick women into caring for fairy babies. The fairies may exchange their babies, called changelings, for a healthy newborn human infants. Usually a human mother can see that a changeling has been substituted for her child because the fairy baby has some ugly physical feature or habit. If the mother threatens to burn the changeling, it may leave and give back the woman’s own child.
