Totally freaked out

This morning around 6:45 I woke up and checked the monitor. I couldn't see Chappell in the screen so of course I ran up to see what was going on. She's a very active sleeper and likes to snuggle up to the back wall of the crib, usually on her side, where I can at least see the back of her bum or head...
This time, she was on her stomach, wedged in the corner with her arm still trapped under her torso. I quickly moved her and let her go back to sleep.
The worst part was seeing this when I went to pick her up at 7:45 :

I know the picture's blurry, but as you can see, it seems as though she got some kind of a "rug burn" on the left side of her face. I don't really know what to do? Take the bumper out? Then she could really hurt herself. Put her sleep wedge back in?

I know one thing-- we're not going out in public today because I don't want Child Protective Services called. I think that's what it's called...
Poor thing. It looks awful!

PS- Reed's home w/ a stomach bug today. I hope we don't get it.

Oh my gosh that is so scary I would DIE! Night before last Pollard was crying (we sometimes regress on this whole boot camp thing) and when I went to get him his face was wedged in the corner of his crib too. I FREAKED. Pulled him back out, stuck in the paci, then found him in the exact same position at like 5:45 when he got up. He gets the same little red marks all over his knees from "crawling" in his sleep, it's so sad-looking!!!
