The answer is that a child's heart beat rate varies depending on the specific age of the child.

A new born baby's heart beats anywhere between 130-160 times a minute. This drops to an average of 60-100bpm for a child above the age of 10.

How many times does a child's heart beat?
Because kids grow so much in the first 10 years of their life, their heartbeat rate will vary depending on how big their ever-growing bodies are becoming.

Although an infant's heartbeat rate is pretty high, it should average out after the first year of their life. Between the ages of 1-10, a child's heart should beat somewhere between 70 and 120 times a minute.

If you're interested in measuring your child's heart-rate, you'll need to give him or her 10 minutes to sit down and relax before you start timing.

Any activity a child undertakes will have an effect on how much work the heart has to do. That's why doctors always measure standard heart beat in terms of 'resting rate'.
The average heartbeat for a healthy child is 120 beats per minute.
Men is 70 and women is 75.
