TOF Baby

our grandchild is a TOF baby (he was born with his asophagus attached to his windpipe - he spent about 3 months in ICU and they stretched his tummy to about in line with his heart. He turned one year in february. He is still tiny like a 3 month old babe, although he can for the last two months sit. He hates tummy time and i dont know if it hurts when he is on his tummy - he also prefers to lie on one side only. His head is bigger than normal, but he does not seem to have anything wrong with his brain. He wants to talk and do things but gets very frustrated because he is basically a 16 month old in his mind but a 3 or four month in his body. no crawling.
Has anyone got any idea how to get him to start crawling?
