Hello, May be she was born with some difficulty and had brain issues, or she fell ill with some infection soon after birth causing this symptom. Tests will involve her nervous system assessment and further tests to find any sepsis anywhere.Meanwhile she may be spoon-fed with expressed breast milk if she can swallow, or by feeding tube inserted into stomach.Good luck to her.
