Laura Haigh, from Plymouth, Devon, and her partner Dean Evans also saw the spooky figure appear to
wave at things in their child’s room
A SPOOKED mum claims she spotted a “ghost baby” climb into her 18-month-old son’s cot and snuggle up
next to him.
Laura Haigh and partner Dean Evans set up a baby monitor after little Sebastian Evans tried to
climb out of his cot at their home in Plymouth, Devon, last month.
However, the mum-of-four said that when they checked it, they were shocked to see the shape of
another tiny, child-like figure lying next to their sleeping baby.
Laura, 39, said she also saw the chilling figure appear to wave at things in Sebastian’s room.
Boat builder Dean, 42, rushed upstairs hoping to discover it was a teddy bear, but he found
his son sleeping alone -- while the shape remained on the monitor and even moved positions.
Laura said: “When I noticed this face appear in the corner of his cot, I got my sister to look
on Skype and there was nothing there at all.
“Sometimes, he brings a teddy to bed with him, so at first I thought it could be that, but
this just looks weird.
“Dean said straight away, ‘It will be just a teddy’ and went straight upstairs. However, he
was a little bit gobsmacked that there was nothing there, but it was still appearing on the monitor.
“He was a bit spooked as he doesn’t believe in that kind of thing and just can’t explain it.
“He usually says, ‘Don’t be silly’ about anything like this. This has opened his mind a little
but he doesn’t like to talk about it much.
“He just kept asking on the night, ‘Has it gone yet?’ as he was a bit freaked out.
“I have checked out the camera and I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with it.
“Friends think it’s really creepy. Whatever it was stayed in the cot until 1.30 a.m. and
disappeared when I went to feed him. But during the night, it moved positions.”
Surprisingly, Laura remains unfazed as she believes if whatever appeared on camera meant any
harm, then little Sebastian would have been upset.
This is not the family’s first paranormal experience. In fact, Laura said she routinely hears
noises in the house and sees pictures on the wall turned upside down.
“Sebastian is fine,” she explained. “I think he can see whatever it was as he will sit in the
cot and smile at nothing. Or he has stared in the corner and waved at something that isn’t there.
“I have not picked up anything that should make me uneasy. Sebastian slept fine all night and
at one point even appeared to cuddle whatever it was.
“If he is not distressed by it, then that’s good. If it meant harm, then it would upset him.
“It hasn’t left me unsettled. We have had some sort of activity in the house but if there is a
presence, it’s not a bad thing. “We have had photos turned upside down or thrown off
the wall. We have had things disappearing when they were there only moments before.
“We see orbs all the time and I have spotted on shadows in the background of photos in the
“We sometimes hear children running around upstairs when there is no one upstairs or even when
the children are not even in the house.
“My partner doesn’t believe in anything like that though. I used to be quite sceptical but the
activity in the house has changed my mind.
“It’s when I can’t explain stuff, such as photos turned upside down that the kids can’t reach,
or unexplained noises, and so on.
“I have heard people shout my name but then when I check no one has even said anything.
“However, this is definitely the most clear thing [we have seen] so far.”
