COVID-19, Breastfeeding, Infant Feeding, and Breast Milk

What Does the Science Tell Us?

This repository was compiled by the Johns Hopkins Center for Humanitarian Health and provides an overview of publications on COVID-19, breastfeeding, infant feeding, and breast milk published between 1 February 2020 - 30 April 2021.






 

All publications provide emerging evidence related to COVID-19 and

  • Breastfeeding and breast milk (including viral transmission and vaccination issues)
  • Infant feeding recommendations
  • Feeding difficulties in newborns

This tremendous effort was undertaken by a dedicated team of graduate students at Johns Hopkins University who volunteered their time to provide this much-needed service during an ongoing crisis.

We would like to thank all of you for sharing this repository with your colleagues, and for all your kind words of thanks and encouragement. It has meant so much to our team. We also owe a huge debt of gratitude to the National Institute of Health (USA) and all the journals that have provided free access to emerging evidence throughout this pandemic. It is a true testament to what can be accomplished when we work together for the common good.
