According to information found on the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Center site, a baby rattlesnake sheds its skin for the first time at about one to two weeks of age. At this time they develop the first segment of their rattle, called a "button". It is not a functioning rattle yet. But with each future shedding a new segment will form. After a few sheddings they will have added more segments, as the number increases so does their ability to vibrate the segments and produce the distinctive rattling sound. Hope this helps.
