What causes wheezing in a child?

My 9-1/2 weeks old boy makes noise while he breath.. The noise sounds like chest congestions. Doesn't make noise all the time. Only happens when laying down or on tummy... what could it be? He drinks milk properly. Everything seems normal except the noise.

the features that you are telling are suggestive of laryngomalacia. I suggest you to get the child examined by doctor for confirmation of diagnosis. Take care.
