How do they check young babies hearing?

Question by נєѕѕι¢α (ανα’ѕ мσмму): How do they check young babies hearing?
Everybody says to have your childs hearing checked but how do they check a childs hearing that is under 1 year of age?
I never saw them do that to my daughter because they took her right after she was born and I didnt see her until an 1 1/2 hours later. She is fine though.

Clap your hands and see if they flinch. Maybe you could try seeking on one side of them and calling their name and see if they try to find you.

    When my baby was born they checked his hearing with the same unit that they use for adults.

    They put this little thing in their ear (sort of like a microphone) and when they play a sound it actually shows a bounced wave on a computer screen indicating that the sound was delivered..

    I know that when you’re in the hospital with your baby, they attach sensors to their heads to check to see if they respond in someway. Not exactly sure how though.
