In brief: See the pediatrician

Check with pediatrician since there are many reasons for leukopenia.
Keep present that the lower the neutrophil count, the more vulnerable your baby is to infectious diseases. One possible cause is autoimmune neutropenia that develops between 6-12 months, with a range of 3-30 months. Spontaneous recovery occurs by age 5 years, and the mean duration of neutropenia is approximately 20 months.
