Will just over 10mls of tap water hurt my 2 month old?

I was half asleep when I made my sons bottle, when I went to the kitchen I used tap water instead of the pre-boiled water, I didn't realise until after he drank a bit of the bottle. I've never tested the water in my building and it is city water, but I'm unsure if 10mls will cause him to get sick? I'm going to be keeping a close eye on him just in cause, or am I just being paranoid as it being such a small amount?

    First kid?  Unless you are in an undeveloped country,  they're fine. We didn't,  during our evolution,  boil all of our water. 

    Exposure to things is how immunity is built, and denying exposure is how future allergies are built.

    Tap water is safe in developed countries. He will be fine.

    Uh yeah... you're just being paranoid. I've seen meth-smoking chihuahuas that were less paranoid.
