Many small atrial septal defects(ASDs) close on their own and don't require any treatment. Your child should be seen by a pediatric cardiologist to make sure the hole is closing, and if it isn't then they can decide the best treatment option. There really isn't much you can do right now, it's just about waiting and seeing what happens. It's not real dangerous, just a small hole that shouldn't cause problems. Enjoy your baby. Good luck.

Hi. Atrial septal defect (ASD) is a hole in the wall between the two upper chambers of your heart. Smaller ASD’s may close on its own during infancy or early childhood. However, larger ASD’s can damage the heart and lungs, and contribute to shortened life span. In this case, surgery is necessary for repair to prevent complications. To know more about ASD and its course, it might be best to ask a pediatric cardiologist for medical advice. Hope this helps.
