“Is it safe to provide milk for my NICU baby if I have or have been exposed to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)?”

An informational guide for families with infants in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) answers this question and more:

  • Does COVID-19 get into my milk?
  • Wouldn’t it just be best for my baby to have formula or donor milk?
  • What if my baby needs donor milk? Can I be sure that it does not have COVID-19?

The guide was created in English by Professor Paula P. Meier, PhD, RN and Associate Professor Aloka L. Patel, MD, both of Rush University Medical Center, with support from FLRF.

Thanks to quick help from professional translators, the guide is now available in six additional languages.
