hi, Roxanne,thanks for query.Your child is absolutely normal.Not your child if you put your hand to your partner chest 2-3 fingers away from nipple and down you can feel his heart beat also.The heart rate is again normal.The sign of problem is she become breathless after playing,her lips or palms truing blue on exertion etc.Do not worry she is fine bye.
