At what age can I expect my child to outgrow his "innocent" heart murmur?

In brief: Doesn't matter

It can be months, years, or occasionally never. Since it is "innocent" you (and as they grow older, your child) need to tell new doctors about the murmur, and the fact it has been evaluated and found to be harmless.
And live a normal, heart healthy lifestyle!

This is VERY good advice. A murmur is not a problem by itself. As a ringside physician, I often hear murmurs that result simply from being in unusually good physical shape, and it's my task to separate them from the (not-rare) missed murmurs of significant disease.
