Depends on context: I guess i would argue that it is a matter of degree. Do the parents desire the final treatment? They get the final say. Most people would try to negotiate with the child. If it is something minor, it may be worth trying something doing. If it is critical (e.g. Emergency treatment, chemotherapy) i would argue that the child will need to follow the doctor's orders.

7-10 Days: Many one year olds with cough with a cold for a week or so. If the coughs is severe (disrupting sleep, associated with fever >102, or limiting activity) i would go to the pediatrician. No over the counter medications work that well in this age group. Your pediatrician may prescribe antibiotics for an ear infection, bronchitis, or pneumonia; or a trial of an inhaled medication for wheeze.

Probably benign: I assume you are referring to a small child. The cause of this may vary with age. Pauses and sighs are common during sleep and not concerning. High pitched breathing noises on breathing in may occur in infants with acid reflux. I would recommend that you try and capture a video on your phone and bring it to your child's pediatrician. Red flags would be problems growing and labored breathing.
