4 month old baby started rolling on stomach in sleep and is sleeping more comfortably. Will he turn head to side? Sometimes hes face down in matress.
Two issues: First, I never worry about whether a baby shifts their position at night when they have the physical ability to role.

I lay down my head feels great. I sit up, forehead fills up with fullness like balloon over eyes. I lay down and goes away in a flash. Sinus mucus?
Usually the opposite: When a person lies down, there is more venous congestion in the nose and sinuses. When you are erect, there is less venous pressure and better mucus flow by gravity.
