They rushed the child to the Royal Aberdeen Children's Hospital but he was declared dead soon after.
A force spokesman said there were no suspicious circumstances surrounding the boy's death and a full investigation would be carried out.
He said: "The child's parents are aware and officers are with them at this difficult time."
