I am writing because I am very worried about a baby I saw at a my breasfeeding support group.
She is almost 4 months old and has an extremly high count of white blood cells. She also has a low count of platelets. She is breastfed and seems to be "healthy". Her iron levels are fine and doctors can't find what is wrong with her. They say that acording to the lab results she should be hospitalized and very sick but since she is breastfed she seem "fine".
Baby's mom and dad are a young loving couple and they are juggling with baby, college, work and now this... it makes me sad and I want to help them.
I would appreciate any adice, thanks!
