Ginger was like any other first time mother. Overly engrossed in her infant daughter, sleep deprived and stretched thin. So one night, when she just needed that extra hour of sleep she let Lila cry it out. Ginger awoke feeling slightly more human, only to find what was in the crib was entirely not.
  
  A mutation in the gene pool. Once happy bouncing babies are now yellow eyed scaled monsters. IS it permanent? Is there a cure? Would you like to hold your baby?
  
  Brianna is an ambitious and empathetic young scientist with a new job. Her background in genetic mutation made her a perfect candidate for the job. She sees the baby in the monster - but is that really a good thing?
  
  Davis is a man of purpose and a man of secrets. His job is simple. Keep the public calm and solve this gremlin problem.

The "thing" sounds absolutely terrifying!  I imagine if the father would have been the one to find that creature in the crib he would have punted it out the window. :))
