Can you sleep on your stomach after a belly button piercing? I always sleep on my stomach, will it make it sore or irritate it?

In brief: Clean, soft cover

Try a sterile soft non-irritating bandage for the hours of sleep until it is healed.
Best!

In brief: Piercing

Sleeping on a piercing right after you've had it done will probably irritate it.
You may want to cover the area with a bandage or find a different sleeping position.
