In brief: Be aware of risk
Part of the trilogy of the robin sequence is "glossoptosis" or the falling back of the tongue root into the airway of a baby on its back, an issue that seems to peak weeks after birth after the jaw & tongue have grown.
Many consider this DX a reason to belly sleep an affected kid rather than back sleep. No symptoms in a 3mo would imply the worst risk may be past, but confer with your dr for specific recs.
