Kaufman, D.A. & Puopolo, K.M. Infants Born to Mothers With COVID-19—Making Room for Rooming-in. JAMA Pediatrics. December 2020. https://doi:10.1001/jamapediatrics.2020.5100
Multicenter study from Italy describes the outcomes of 62 infants born to SARS-CoV-2–infected mothers who felt well enough to care for their infants at the time of delivery. The study findings support the most recent updates to the AAP neonatal guidance, which recommend rooming-in unless mothers are too ill to care for their newborn.
