Do babies cry different if they are deaf?

In the old days, parents whose children were born deaf were often unaware that anything was amiss until the child was, say, 3 years old. Deaf babies are exceptionally good at fooling their parents. They cry and babble just like hearing infants do, since these instinctive behaviors don't depend on hearing.

Furthermore, what causes hearing loss at birth?

Deafness can also be caused by complications during pregnancy. Illnesses such as rubella, cytomegalovirus (CMV), toxoplasmosis and herpes can cause a child to be born deaf. There is also a range of medicines, known as ototoxic drugs, which can damage the hearing system of a baby before birth.

What is the most common reason for hearing loss?

Disease and infections: Viral infections, such as measles, meningitis and mumps can cause sensorineural hearing loss. Head or acoustic trauma: Damage to your inner ear can also be caused by a blow to the head or exposure to an extremely loud noise, such as an explosion.
