In brief: Depends on situation

Most newborns are screened at birth now in larger hospitals.
They are routinely screened every year or two in the schools & at well checks at 5 yr. I like to arrange a hearing test anytime a mom feels baby is not responding.

In brief: No

Not unless your child has a documented history of hearing loss or recurrent/chronic ear infections.
