Typically KC begins after ill infants are stabilized many days post birth. Now that safety and benefits are documented, we propose KC is beneficial under other circumstances. Eleven case studies representing KC variations will be discussed, including KC for: a 32-week infant and his parents beginning 4 hours post birth; full term infants before a feeding to achieve a successful latch after they failed to do so by 24-36 hours post birth; a 6-day-old tube fed full term infant to prevent refractory severe gastric reflux; adolescent parents and their 32-week twin boys beginning 19 hours post birth; a severely eclamptic mother and her medically stable small preterm infant 10 minutes post birth; and a mother of four who worried about bonding with her 34-35 week triplet sons. Other cases include a 36-week infant girl with her grandmother and 5-year-old brother; an adopting mother when the infant was born very prematurely; a substance-abusing depressed mother who lost custody of her first infant but was in rehabilitation during this pregnancy; a ventilated infant with RDS; and a subsequent similar infant at the same hospital who had KC and warmed humidified oxygen under an oxygen hood on his mother’s chest and recovered without ventilation. Six cases are from our randomized trial.
