how is hearing impairment diagnosed in babies and infants? Is it possible to know at this early age?

yes, usually when babies does not react to sudden loud music or does not look at you when you call their name. deaf babies grew p as mute as well.

I agree. Often times this is not usually noticed till the child reaches toddlerhood.

I would imagine that babies who are deaf are unresponsive to sound. At around 6=8 months babies can recognize their parents or caregiver's voices and smile as a response. I think this could be a good indicator.

I am not sure but don't babies start to respond to their parents or caregivers voices at a certain age? A good indicator for me would also be their behavior. If they like to play alone then it is probably because they are deaf.
