Thanks for writing to health care magic.
A premature baby can have developmental delay if there is some insult at birth.
The insult can be in the form of hypoxia
(baby not crying immediately after birth) or hypoglycemia
or in any other form.
Was your baby in NICU
If so what was the course in NICU and were there any other complications at that time?
What is his birth weight?
What is his age now?
Can he hold his neck/sit with out support?
Please reply in detail so that I can help you better.
