What is the weight of your baby?
For fever you can give Paracetamol drops in a dose of 15mg/kg/dose four times a day for 2 to 3 days.
If your baby is around 7 kg, You may give Paracetamol drops (100mg/ml strength) 1 ml four times a day. Check the strength of the medicine so that give the right dose.
If he gets wheezy episodes again and again, the cause has to be looked into.
Hope you find my answer useful.
