I'm sure the parents are already seeing a Paediatric Cardiologist. The breathing will not be normal until surgery. Unfortunately we don't raise funds on ATP for individuals.

Baby medicinePlease can my baby of 3yrs use (Biosea)cod liver oil
Cod liver oil has many health benefits for kids; however, you should only give this oil to your kid after it has been prescribed by your doctor. If your doctor feels the need, he may prescribe cod liver oil supplements to your child. Babies who are still on breast milk can derive its benefits if the mother takes cod liver oil.
