Because the mother supplies the baby's blood while in utero, if the baby tests positive for HIV that means that the mother has HIV (unles of course it is a false positive ). There is still a chance that the baby is not HIV positive, but the state cannot tell whether baby is HIV +/- until its body takes over blood supply etc., which takes a few weeks.
Hope that helps clarify.
