Your baby is still wheezing after almost certainly having had a chest infection caused by a virus known as RS virus. This illness which is called bronchiolitis takes about 3 weeks to clear up in young babies. If your baby continues to wheeze after more than 21days from the start of his infection, he should be seen by a paediatrician.
