Moira said she had to remove her rings due to her eczema.

"I walked out to get paper towel from the nappy changing area to dry Harper's hands after she got a fright and forgot to go back," Moira said.

Moira and her husband are hoping a mum, dad or grandparent have picked up the rings and will hand them in.

"I balled my eyes out when I found out they hadn't been handed into management," Moira said.
