Question Baby has cp?

My great niece is 9mo old SHe has clenched fists all the time ,doesn't turn over can't sit up Has worn her hair off all the way around her head because she is on her back all the time. SHe NEVER reached for anything and seems to look side ways in a fixed gaze occasionally. She leans to the left when they try to sit her up . SHe then is all slumped up and can't sit aloneShe doesn't try to hold her bottle when fed. The problem is my sister doesn't see anything wrong. She hollars at me and says all babies mature at different rates. She also say the Dr says she is right up to par.I can't figure out if she is in denial or if the Dr is one of those who says they don't diagnose cp until the baby is 18 mo Is there anyway I can intervene I am in termoil all the time.
I am so afraid time is being wasted
