In brief: E. Coli meningitis

E. Coli meningitis in the neonate most commonly occurs between 48 hours and one month after delivery, but usually within 3 months overall.
Timing of onset depends on a number of factors including prematurity, surgical procedures performed, trauma, immune status, length of hospitalization, etc.
