Quoting We made a BabyBumpBelly:" They can charge you with theft. If they do, there goes your chance at any good jobs, sometimes it can ... [snip!] ... background. IDK if they can take your baby or not, I don't believe they can for this. Couldn't you just buy the flip flops?"
They only take your children if you have them help you steal. Child endangerment or something like that. My mom manages wal mart and she had a lady having her kids help her steal and they were taken away from her and she went to jail for a certain amount of time. So unless your baby (not possible) helped you steal, I think your in the clear. :-) But you should probably stop stealing, not a very mature thing to do.
