Hi,
Thank you for asking question on health care magic.
Your baby's report are normal except there is some increase in T4 levels.
Actually very minute amount may pass through breast milk.
What is safe for the mother is safe for the baby also.
If you observe any adverse symptoms in the baby you may better repeat thyroid function tests.
Hope this answer will serve your purpose
Please feel free to ask any more queries if required
Take care
