In brief: Birth

The american academy of pediatrics supports universal screening hearing examinations of all newborns, and almost all states have programs set up to do this automatically.
If you're not sure if your baby has already had a hearing test, ask your pediatrician. Even with a normal newborn screen, hearing tests should be repeated if there is any suspicion of hearing loss.

In brief: Depends

Most babies have their hearing tested as part of their newborn screening shortly after birth, while in the hospital.
Even if your baby passes this screening, if they have multiple ear infections or delays in their speech, it may be worth talking to your pediatrician about having him/her undergo a thorough audiological evaluation.
