  • Where is the sound coming from? The lungs? Nose? Has baby recently been sick? In my experience a rattling sound would not be an indicator of anything positive. I would seek a pediatrician tomorrow unless there are other symptoms or it gets worse then I would call a nurse hotline and maybe go in tonight.

  • Call your pediatrician and they will know what questions to ask and they might want to see your child.

  • Please report back with what this is after you see the doctor. Newbies ask questions about their babies all the time and never come back to say they are okay!
