Airfit N30i vs Dreamwear nasal - weird situation with N30i

Airfit N30i vs Dreamwear nasal - weird situation with N30i
Few days ago I started using N30i as I supposed it may better fit my nose.
N30i enclose nose on both sides and prevents leaks really well, which after first night looked really good comparing to dreamwear.
However… During first night I woke up because I couldn’t breathe out fully. Airsense behaved like I had apnea, delivering air with “pulses”
Today I had a bigger problem. Couldn’t breath at all so I woke up. One reason could be physical, since mask silicon is up to sides of my nose, as a side sleeper I push my face into pillow which makes silicon push and close one of my nostrils.
Second reason could be too low pressure?
Did anyone have similar problem after changing from dreamwear to Airfit? Did you have to adjust pressure?

Which nose piece do you have for your N30i? If I remember right the new one is very flexible. The old one is firm and unbending. Lie on your side the old one would be a chore to wear.

I went from DreamWear Nasal to N30i, too.  Not sure that I'm 100% OK with it--I tend to alternate between the S and the SW nasal cushion, and what I've observed is that, if you don't get the two holes directly lined up with your nostrils, one or the other seem to be blocked.  Never had this issue with the DreamWear Nasal Mask (I tried using that mask with the ResMed AirSense 11 AutoSet, and no matter what settings I changed, it made like a squealing or whistling sound, so have to use the ResMed mask).

I just ordered a replacement nose cushion, so...hoping that the replacement works better.
