In brief: Most see right away.

Once you get eye contact, you know for sure.

In brief: At birth

Babies can see from the moment they are born, they just don't have good eye control until they are older (so their eyes may cross).
Newborns prefer to look at faces and color contrasts and see best at 12-14 inches away from their face.
