I'm sorry Steven; I have to agree with Thordaddy here: consciousness cannot be inferred to a new born.
The only way one can infer consciousness is comparison (which is not very scientific): “I am a conscious human being, you are a human being who behave roughly the same as I do, therefore you should be conscious.”
This comparison cannot be made with a new born because you can’t begin with “I am a conscious new born”.
