Fortunately, at 9 months your baby's immune system has developed and is better able to fight infection than during the first months of his life. Lymph nodes and vessels are major components of his immune system. Lymph nodes are bundles of lymph tissue found throughout the body that collect and break down toxins and other waste products. Lymph vessels transport lymph, a clear fluid that comes from the spaces between cells throughout the body. Other important components of your babyâ's immune system include macrophages, white blood cells that surround and digest pathogens such as bacteria and fungi.
