A member of the public discovered a white baby boy in Sandringham Road, Dalston, at around 11.40am on Saturday, 25 January.
The newborn was wearing a grey baby grow, grey hat and was wrapped up in a white knitted blanket.
He is currently being cared for at an east London hospital.
Detectives believe the baby was born outside of a hospital environment.
“I would urge the mother of this baby to make contact either with police, your local hospital or GP surgery and let us know that you are safe and can receive any medical care you may need,” said Inspector Kevin Weeks.
“I would also urge anyone who has information that could help us to reunite this baby with his mother to come forward.”
