I’m not sure what section to put this in. Since my daughter is a baby, I’ve noticed she has a SUPER strong heart beat. Like super strong. My ped never said anything about it until her last well visit a few months ago. She’s a super active (read: sensory seeking) kid, who is literally like the energizer bunny- she just goes and goes until her batteries die, and then all of a sudden she just conks out.
Anyway, so when I took her for her well visit, the ped mentioned it and asked if she’d ever been seen by a cardiologist. I said I’d noticed it since she was a baby but no one ever said anything about it.
So I’m just wondering....is it a sign of something being wrong? Is it just a thing that happens? Does anyone else have a child with a super duper strong heartbeat?

Sounds like a lot of a good thing! What did your pediatrician say? Is he worried?

You should have the child seen by a Pediatric Cardiologist. My heartbeat was always super loud and I had a Congenital heart condition. It was caught by my old school pediatrician when I was a baby because my heartbeat sounded "off". It could also be a harmless murmur of some sort but check it out.

That's interesting. I've never heard of a loud heartbeat to be an indication of a CHD

A murmur generally isn't a louder heartbeat it's the sound of extra whooshing aside from the regular lub-a-dub the heart normally make

She said it sounds like it’s probably a harmless murmur, and I don’t need to rush to get her checked, but if I have time I can go to a pediatric cardiologist.

If you're in NYC, Columbia- Presbyterian pediatrician cardiology dept is top notch

Systolic murmurs are graded from 1-6 with 6 being the loudest
Mine was so loud it was off the charts. It made my heartbeat sound so loud you could hear it without a stethoscope. It took me a long time after my valve replacement surgery to be able to fall asleep easily because I couldn't hear the sound of my heartbeat anymore lol.

Innocent murmurs can cause loud heartbeat as well. It's probably a good idea to make the time to get the little one checked out just to be sure.

I had this. My pediatrician heard it when I was probably 8 or 9 years old. I went for a full pediatric cardio workup at the local childrens hospital. Bh it was a harmless murmur. I've had a few doctors notice it as I've gotten older, and I went to a cardiologist again just to double check everything.
Bh all is well, but it's definitely something I'll glad was checked out

Omg that part about you not being able to fall asleep. Sounds so spoke not to be able to hear something so essential when before you could!

Yes!!! This is exactly what she said about my daughter- “it’s so loud, I don’t even need the stethoscope to hear it”!!!
