Brief Answer:
Baby is safe.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Diluted bleached water contains a very small amount of bleach in it and is not likely to harm the baby in any way. This can cause some irritation of throat, nose or oral mucosa. This is usually relieved with milk and all these do heal on their own in next few days. No special treatment is needed. Your baby is safe. No need to worry. You can go for your regular antenatal scan and check up when due.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
