hmmm perhaps, however the tales and examples throughout history usually imply vast differences. examplified by children anywhere from infancy to around toddlers knowing foreighn languages and rhetoric and having wisdom quite beyond there age.

the oceans call to you, the earthen fated tune,
I am the ivy binding tight i hold the spells all through the night, i am
nightshade's fated swoon of deaths kiss and witches broom

Most cases of changelings were not documented in great detail due to the fact that they still tortured and murdered a baby. So it wouldn't have been greatly documented. The stories, like I said before, seem to tell of children who are deformed, usualy around the face, and look fay like. So that could be unusual eyes and mouth. Possibly down syndrom. The other cases just sounds like a mother who can't cope and claims that the baby never stops crying and she feels tired and drained all the time as though it is feeding off her, these are normal complaints of a woman who devolps a form of dissattachment due to post natal depression. So looking throuhg these cases, seperating the explainable cases from the unexplainable should give you a small amount of stories that could be true. But I think if you found that your baby was a changeling and you would never see your true child again unless you could strike some sort of deal you would keep it pretty quiet and undocumented, atleast until you and your child were old and safe enough.

agreed however most if any valid documentation of human spirit crossbreeds tend to be with something as benighn and hard to classify as a fae or some kind of genus loci.

Some of us may not say we're changlings because a changeling by tradition would look like a down syndrome baby :p
I saw and was silent,
I saw and thought,
and heard the speech of Odin
I heard about what lay in the runes,
and there was much council given.
At the hall of Har, In the hall of Har;
Such was the speech I heard.
