Hello sir;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
In new born babies it is normal to have a slightly increased TLC count and it settles in few days.The thing to worry in a new born after 3 days is the jaundice which happens after haemolysis and it settles in few days.Please discuss the issue with your paediatrician or neonatologist and he will take care of the problem and even explain you in detail.

As TLC of your baby is high,baby requires treatment,
Consult Neo natologit or pediatrician and stat the treatment.
Avoid taking baby to the party where so many people are there.
Wrap baby in neat and clean clothes,keep in healthy surroundings,
Give mother's milk only
clean your breasts and nipple with warm water and then you feed your baby,
After feeding clean baby's tongue and mouth with tissue paper keeping on finger tip.
give medicines regularly.observe temperature and give detail history to your doctor.
I think this will satisfy your query,
ok and take care,
