My baby has been diagnosed with 11mm ASD. Its quite large, so posibility of it closing on its own is less. He was diagnosed only 2day backs but already showing signs of breathless, not feeding well, and cries more. Doc suggested monthly checks and suggests surgery only after he gains abt 10kg. now he's 4months n 5kgs... How do I care 4 him so that he continues 2 gain weight and stays happy?

Jasmin,
My son just had surgery for his ASD in February. I wrote a blog about the experience. www.awalkwithwatson.wordpress.com. Good luck with your daughter. I know how scary looming surgery feels.

Hi! Do you have an update on your baby with the ASD? Did you do surgery yet? Did feedings improve? I have a daughter who is 5 months with a 10mm asd and we are considering surgery to correct it sometime this spring or summer, depending on her health. Any advice?

dear sheetal,
I had to look up and see what ASD was. I wasn't familiar with it . I found out that it is heart issues and etc. I hope to suggest something for you little baby. First off , I'm so sorry for your troubles with your child. It is heartbreaking to hear what is wrong with you child. Your child is being breathless because He isn't getting enough of oxygen to his heart.
I'm into herbs and things that has to do with what God has put here on earth for people to use to heal and treat.
I have use soverign silver (colidal silver). Soverign silver is a brand name of colidal silver. It is the best kind you can get and I do know this works for various of things. You can look up the history of colidal silver. The diseases and problems that many people have dealt with and have cured by using soverign silver. Colidal silver has treated heart disease,artery problems and etc. I had looked up to see if it is good for this ASD. It was in the cataglory of the heart disease problems. It has treated many people. Colidal silver has been used since the 1800's. There are so many things that dr's don't tell you. Maybe if you give your son this colidal silver every day. It just may treat and cure him. You said that you may have to have surgery when he gains 10kg and he is 5kgs now at 4 months old. I've give colidal silver to my 3 month old. It comes in a bottle with a dropper. I gave only a small portion of the dropper in my son't mouth. This stuff, you can put it in your eyes and it won't hurt you. This should show you that if it won't hurt your eyes ( which is the most sensitive thing on your body), it won't hurt nothing else.
I thought I would give this suggestion to you of trying the soverign silver. Maybe this will be your cure and treatment for your son without having to have surgery. God can heal your son and I will pray for it.
As long as you are taking care of your son the way you see fit, he will be happy. If you will look into the soverign silver yourself. I hope this will help your son!

Definitely get a 2nd opinion to see about getting him surgery much earlier. Are you breast feeding by any chance? The fat content in breast milk is nice and high. If not you can see about going to a breast milk bank and getting it donated. Also I would recommend constantly holding him. I know it sounds crazy but a mothers touch does wonders for a child physically, emotionally and mentally. I can't explain it but it is true. Don't listen to anyone that says you will spoil him. Go ahead and spoil him with love because eventually he will outgrow it and not want to be held anymore.
