Hi nightmaregurl420 -

I am sorry to hear about your nephew. How many weeks was he when he was born?

Hopefully others will respond with some ideas for positioning and comfort. I did find a couple resources for you but nothing specific for positioning.

Tracheomalacia - Collapsed trachea

The hernia article does mention that most children do not feel pain from the hernia.

We also have a Parenting: Preemies Communities to connect with others for support and advice.

Keep us posted on how he is doing,
