Hello:
I just logged on and saw your question has been sitting without any further reply for 6 days...I'm SO sorry about that. This is definitely not the norm for JustAnswer or the Expert Community. My sincerest apologies!
How is your tiny boy doing now?
He SHOULD be fine as it doesn't sound to me like the amount of chocolate he ingested was a toxic amount. Maybe a little upset belly if it was milk chocolate, which is my hope that it was milk chocolate, but otherwise fine.
Here is a link for you to keep handy in case this ever happens again to your boy:

Hopefully you will never need that chart for your boy, but now you have it handy.
I wish you all the best and again, I'm so sorry no one else has responded until now.
Thank you,
Gina
