NapNanny makes a positioning form for kids with this. Older children with it can sleep on a ComfyLift Bed. There are Tucker Slings you can purchase or make, or apply for under insurance, just google the term. Also, talk to his doctor about it and perhaps request a sleep study - laryngomalacia is pretty commonly known for interfering with breathing, causing a need for pulse-ox continuously or even oxygen. It's not a concern if it's already been evaluated, but if it hasn't I'd request it to be sure.

Put a pillow under his mattress to keep him elevated. You can't put a pillow directly under him....
