Growth of a premature baby

Patient

Q: Dear Doctors my Sister Husna suffered from infertility for about 2 years after her marriage. But after getting continuous treatment for her frequent miscarriages and infertility she got conceived and gave birth to a male Pre-mature baby( in 8 months). But right form the birth the baby is suffering from several problems. Breathing problems, indigestion problems, unable to suck mother's milk and low calcium in bones. my sister also was unable to secrete the required milk and so he was given lactogen as proscribed by the doctor. Now the baby is about 7 months old but he is unable to do anything. the baby keeps lying on bed. he is not active as other babies of his age. he is unable to even stand on his legs wen we support him. his neck is as same as he was during his birth it does not stand properly.My sister is very scared of my nephew. he does neither crawls nor he turns by side.he always keeps lying on bed. He gets frequent inflammation in his eyes. His eys become red and bulged when he takes bath.my sister is very much depressed about her baby.pls suggest something.
