In brief: Audiologist
If it unclear if a child has a hearing issue or not, he or she should go to an audiologist to get a full evaluation.
Then, the child may be referred on to an ENT specialist if necessary.

In brief: Contact your doctor
If you are concerned about your baby's hearing, it is best to contact your doctor. If your baby has an ear infection, sometimes that can cause a temporary hearing loss.
This would go away in most children with appropriate medication treatment. If your baby otherwise appears healthy, your doctor may refer you to an audiologist, who can do a hearing test to evaluate for any true hearing problem.
