Your niece was a premature baby; premature babies often have lots of issues with breathing and feeding because they are born before they are ready to do this for themselves. If she has had to be on oxygen it is quite possible that her lungs are not yet mature or strong enough for her to produce a cry. Is she still in the NICU? Do the doctors there give her parents regular updates on the baby and of any complications she may have? I think her parents need to ask for a meeting with her doctors to find out what her progress is and to discuss any problems she may be having.
