Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

If you have repeatedly noticed irregular heartbeats in your child, then it is better to see a doctor for a complete physical examination and further evaluation, if necessary. It is better to have a proper medical check-up and clear your doubts, rather than being anxious and worried about it.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
