wat's a baby to do???

so this have been bothering me for some time now, my brother in law n his baby mama has some issues arent together but he still uses her for sex. So thru this they had a baby n he didnt want to be there but she still comes by in hope that he can get him back. she seems depressed alot n now its seems like the baby is having some development issues, like he didnt learn to sit up unsurported until he turned 10 months n he learned to hold his own bottle at 12 months n now at 15 months he is barely learning to crawl but he is very stiff n he uses his toes to crawl by pushin against them...idk its very weird. But the mom is very clingy n sad alot n i think she is using the baby to confort her emotions cuz she holds him alot n doesnt let him really play on the floor or do nething he beind n alot, she is smothering him n she says the doc say he has no dev. issues but i think she is lying. Is this normal devlopment or am i going crazy

  • She may be holding him too much, i am very clingy to my children for the same reason but not that clingy

  • it sound like she is depress so the baby is not getting a good start in life she needs to let go of the past and if things work out with they father then great but she needs to think about her child development becuase she it going to hurt his learning skills if she hasn't already
