infant risk

Hi, I'm hiv positive. The other day I meet my nephew, a 3-month old baby boy. And I held him in my arms when I sneezed. I was so concerned that some of my saliva has entered his mouth because he was crying then. I know there's not enough virus in saliva, but considering the baby is not strong enough to defeat external virus attack, I was wondering if there's a chance that my nephew get infected by my saliva. I'm really worried and self-blamed abt that. It's all my fault. Please help

HIV is not airborne and saliva is not infectious.
