Fuzz Is Asleep On His Tummy-Should I Flip Him Over?

Fuzz in the Dark on His Tummy
Can you see him on his tummy?

Here is Fuzz asleep right now. It’s dark, so hopefully you can see that he’s in this stomach-sleeping position.

About an hour ago, I checked on him and he was on his tummy. He rolled into this position by himself. He can currently roll from back to tummy, but not the other way around.

I suffered the dilemma of whether or not I should flip him, after trying to shove a pacifier in his mouth failed. I finally decided to flip him, thinking this would at least give me peace of mind, even if he did wake up.

He didn’t wake up, but then started making some noises and flipped back onto his tummy. Then he moved his head from side to side and complained a little, trying to figure out how he could breathe best. I know he’s having some snotty breathing issues due to the teething (or perhaps due to the cold his two-year-old brother has given him), too. This concerns me about leaving him in this position.

He’s right outside the room where I’m sleeping in a pack-n-play, since there’s no room for him in my bed here.

So if I flip him again, he’ll probably just flip back, right? If I don’t flip him, will I not sleep because I’m so freaked out? We don’t have our breathing monitor here in New York.  I need that Magic sleep suitcase thing!! What should I do?? I need to get some rest!!

I don’t know if I can stay on the computer too much longer to check for responses, but please leave your comments because I’m sure if I’m up all night tonight with this problem, I’ll want to have some opinions for tomorrow night, when this happens again!! Thanks!!
