Is there a way to encourage both to be head down?

I am 29 weeks with b/g twins. Girl is head down and engaged and been that way for a while, her brother is next to her but higher up. She thankfully cannot change positions with her brother's butt sitting on her. But any way I can encourage him to turn without getting her to turn?

LOL spinning babies talks about helping them turn.. but doesn't say what to do if you just want ONE to flip

I'm ok with boy being breech but would love him to be head down if at all possible.

no advice but in a similar place, my girl is calm and head down in a good spot, she is clearly baby A and sticking to it.
the boy flips all over the place at nearly 24 weeks, still flipping and wiggling back and forth. i think he reacts to me laying on his side more and rubbing him

I tried homeopathy and positioning and finally gave up. The breech one flipped the next morning at 36 weeks.

Generally babies want to be head down, so you can do positioning things and the happy one should stay head down while the other moves around.
