All babies are born with an opening in the wall between the upper heart chambers called a patent foramen ovale which usually measures between 2 and 4 mm. This is normal. Anything larger than that could be a true atrial septal defect (ASD). However, many true ASDs often close up or get smaller over time with the growth of the child. Your child sounds like it has the normal 2.5 mm patent foramen ovale which typically closes on its own in humans over time. Even if it did not, it would not require intervention. So it is not a worry. Your doctor can guide you if you have further concerns.
