We need to see what type of ASD. VSDs if multiple, what location. Status of pulmonary hypertension. Small VSDs with high gradient across, do tend to close by preschool age. But if there is failure to thrive or gain weight or not able to feed well, you need to see a dedicated pediatric cardiologist / pediatric cardiac surgeon team
