2 Answers from Attorneys
If the child was born in the United States, the child is automatically a U.S. citizen (You must have a U.S. birth certificate to prove this). However, you should get the child a U.S. passport now, to avoid potential problems in the future.
If the child is in the U.S., you can take him/her to a participating U.S. passport office or post office and file the application (with supporting documents). If the child is outside the U.S., you can file at the U.S. Consulate. The child must be physically present & you must have the qualifying documents, forms & fees with you at time of filing.
For more information, refer to the U.S. Department of State website links:
You don't mention if you are a US citizen or not. A child born to one US citizen parent may claim derivative citizenship.
