Good morning
No.
My contact with infants is very brief as a consultant in infectious disease but I stayed in touch with many of my adult patients and families throughout the years.
Having a person or family member walk up to me years after I took care of them and say thanks is very satisfying.

In most cases, it depends upon parents preference. Let’s keep in mind that HIPPA is a big thing and you may not want to cross that boundary. However, from personal experience I can say that some families spend weeks/months in the NICU which in returns builds a bond with the nurses and doctors. For that same reason in some cases we do have kiddos that we have known from 27 weeks gestation and up to these days.
