Thanks for writing to us.
Since you have used a diluted bleach, it is not likely to produce many fumes to harm your baby. Please do not worry as most of the effects are short lasting. You can have a deep breathing in the open spaces to decrease the effect.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. You can consult me again directly through my profile URL
