Tylwyth Teg also known as Bendith y Mamau (Blessing of the Mothers) is a collective term for fair folk or fairies in Welsh and Irish
According to legend fairies had a habit of taking kind hearted babies and young children from their cribs and replacing them with a Changeling or plentyn-newid.
These changelings would look identical to the child but cause much distress to the parents
by screaming, consuming as much food as a full grown adult and generally making the
tparents lives unpleasant.
