A woman has pleaded guilty in court to kidnapping a baby boy from his family home in Telford, Shropshire.
The abduction of the boy - who cannot be named for legal reasons - led to a manhunt and national appeal until he was found safe and well a few hours later.
Kelly Mahon, 41, was accused of taking the baby unlawfully either by force of fraud from his family home in Telford, on 24 February.
Mahon, of John Broad Avenue, Telford, entered her plea at Shrewsbury Crown Court.
She was remanded in custody for sentencing on 12 May.
Telford Magistrates' Court heard last month the kidnap had been pre-planned.
Prosecutor Kelly Crowe told a hearing on 26 February that a police search of the defendant's home had found several child-related items. 
Ms Crowe said: "When officers go around there (to Mahon's home) a number of baby items were present; cots, clothes, baby clothes, both female and male and also a to-do list.
"She made reference to sterilisers, nappies, and milk for babies."
