How can I get my baby to better stay still during breathing treatments?

Distraction. Sometimes nothing works but certainly distraction with common things your baby may like such as reading, videos, singing or just be soothing and reassuring with him/her. Be crafty sometimes you can let them help in the process and sometimes you just have to do it! eventually most will settle down and accept it.
