Hello there..
Seriousness of the problem depends on the type of heart disease your baby is suffering, for example Congenital heart diseases like Atrial septal Defect, Ventricle septal defect are easily treatable by simple procedures. But certain Diseases like tetrology of fallot etc are life threatening and requires immediate attention and treatment!!
So A detailed investigation and appropriate management is required for your baby!!
Hope this helps!!
Take care!!
