A.

Paediatrician

This could just be a very temporary thing, but on the other hand there are certain genetic conditions that need to be looked for such as Waardenburg's Syndrome which is associated with hearing loss. It is very necessary for your baby to be seen by a paediatrician who will be able to diagnose your baby.
