Small muscular ventricular septal defects (VSDs) are extremely common heart murmurs, and if they are the only heart problem, will pose no extra work for the heart in the short term or the long term. There is a high chance (better than 50%) that they can even close spontaneously. There are no special precautions that need to be taken on the part of the family. The baby would be expected to feed and grow normally. If your child were to have trouble taking in enough nutrition, or was failing to grow normally, or breathing fast most of the time, then you should take the child back to the doctor to check on the VSD. But that is highly unlikely to happen. Good luck.
