Infant heart murmur

Two week old infant girl diagnosed with a heart murmur. Eats and sleeps well, not in distress, examined by pediatric cardiologist and reassured should take care of itself within 6-8 months, but vomiting (not just spitting up) and losing weight.  Need information regarding heart murmur and possible treatment.

Dear Janie,

This may just be a flow murmur and will likely correct itself but i recommend that it be followed closely and if you not any change in your daughters symptoms a return visit to the physician.
