Had 4 units of prbcs post delivery, breastfed, checked baby at 6 mo at creepy aids clinic. Should I have done that?

In brief: Probably not
Transmission of HIV through blood transfusions is extremely rare in the USA.
Rather than checking the baby you could have yourself checked. The baby will not get HIV disease unless transmitted through you. Your having it is also unlikely, assuming this was your only risk factor.
