    Welcome to Android Central! It should still be expecting your password/PIN/pattern/fingerprint. A baby cannot accidentally change it by just touching/banging/drooling on it. Your baby would've had to unlock the phone, go to the security settings to change the password, entered your correct current password, then created a new password, then entered it again to confirm.

    I was thinking while the baby was playing with it, touching the screen registered too many password attempts and locked it out?

    Yes, but if you get locked out, there should still be some way to get access again. That might be entering your Google account/password, but that's a relatively old method -- not sure if any current phones are doing that. From what I've seen, the main things that most current phones do if you fail the unlock enough is prolong the interval between unlock attempts (i.e., "Try again in 30 minutes"), do an automatic factory reset (usually with a warning telling you how many more attempts you have left), or nothing (i.e., stay on the lockscreen).
