Can feel my son heartbeat

Hi, I can feel my son's heart beat just by placing my hand on his chest. He is 3yrs old and active normally. Does this any problem that we need to worry. We don't feel the same with any body in our family including my 8 months old daughter. Please suggest..

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  This is not a patholpgical thing and its just a normal thing. Some people who are thin and have a thin chest wall on them you can easily feel the heart beat. Do not worry. If you are still concerned, you can consult a pediatrician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.

Hello well if your son or daughter 8 are thin built then it is common that we can feel your heartbeat I don't think you have to worry about it as in kids the heart rate will be higher as compared to that of adults so do not bother about it thank you
