In brief: On her side.

I would not recommend you put her on her belly and you may be to worried to put her on her back so a comfortable and safe position for her might be on her side.
You can also raise the head of the crib slightly. Is she vaccinated? Has she seen her pcp lately? Would not want to miss an rsv, croup or whooping cough. Good luck. Hope she gets better soon. /jp.
