2 doctors agree

In brief: Several approaches

First, remove lead from the environment.
Second, treatment with iron. Third - oral or intravenous chelation.

In brief: Depends

Your info gives little detail.
Baby? few babies have had time to get significant lead exposure. If your test is a bit high, understand that 20 years ago they accepted twice the blood lead content before they called it high.Management can be as simple as identifying and avoiding any further exposure (most levels), to hospital based IV drugs at critically high levels.
