    The answer would be: Apply adequate restraints

    The infant just had a surgery and probably still in effect of the sedatives. When the sedative stopped, the infant might remove the i. v. line. It is important to keep the intravenous infusion intact by giving restraint. Using sedative could work but it will be dangerous and less safe. Assessing for infiltration is not related to the condition.
