Baby is having congenital heart disease. Such babies have difficulty in gaining weight due to recurrent infections and breathing problems. Furoped is given for the heart condition. If your Dr. has prescribed it then it should be continued. Kindly meet a cardio thoracic surgeon for need of any surgical intervention. Also regularly meet a cardiologist to evaluate the heart condition and needs for other antifailure drugs if needed.
