TODDLER BROKEN CLAVICAL

Hello. This morning my son fell out of bed and broke his collarbone. He is in a sling but hates it - he cries just about every 5 minutes to get it off of him. I try explaining that this is the only way he'll feel better, but i think he's just uncomfortable. Is there a specific way that he should sit or stand or lay that will promote the healing? He's laying but with his head a little elevated so that he can see the TV. To me, this would be uncomfortable to the bone, but it doesn't seem to bother him. He is bothered when i try to move him. Any suggestions? Thank you - i really appreciate any help you can give!
