Chanquito, sound different. May be you meant Chiquito. This is another word use in Central America for: child, baby, small boy.

From the lullaby:

Duérmete, niño chiquito,

duérmete y no llores más,

que se irán los angelitos

para no verte llorar.

Like other members said: baby, child, small boy...
