Thanks for writing to us.
Low levels of TSH in babies is found in children whose mother is also hypothyroid. It is necessary to start with the thyroid hormone supplementation for normal development of the brain. You can consult an endocrinologist for the same.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
