In brief: At birth!
It is now recommended universally for babies to be screened for congenital hearing problems right after birth.
This should be done at the hospital your baby is born at and you should receive a written report. If this was not done or if you ever have any concerns about your child's hearing, request that your doctor refer you to a pediatric audiologist.

Usually testing is done in the first 24-48 hours of birth.
