What's a normal hearbeat for a 2 year old at rest?

My 2 year old son was just asleep next to me and I realised his heartbeat is very fast....about 120 per minute. He threw up not long ago and is a little sick. Should his heartbeat be that fast while he's asleep?!!

  • That is the perfect rate... it should be in the 110's- 120's
