When my son was a couple months old he had congestion and a cough that wouldn't go away. From what I remember the cough did sound like a rattle. I forget exactly what he was diagnosed with but it was pretty common for babies. Our doctor ended up prescribing us a nebulizer for him. The only time I had seen a nebulizer was when my grandmother wasn't doing well in a hospital and needed help breathing. I was scared about using a nebulizer for my son but i found out it's pretty common. If the cough is lasting longer than a week and your child is having trouble breathing, I would get a second opinion. Better safe than sorry!
