At birth?

 My last son never did, he was born at home and went straight to the breast after being suctioned. Not one peep.

My daughter did immediately. My son didn't for a couple minutes, very scary. He was born at 34 weeks, so we weren't sure what to expect. He's ok now though :-)

Its funny my first born with epidural in the hospital cried. Second child born in the hospital with no meds was peaceful as a lamb. Never made a peep and freaked me out! She continues to be a very happy child! Then my third I had a home water birth with soft music, low lights... and that baby screamed the longest and the loudest of all of them! I held him skin to skin right away, but he was so angry! Just screamed for hours!

Yes.
First son he had one small whimper until they wrapped him up like a burrito and then he screamed.

Second son was crying right away. He was loud and was the loudest in the nursery. Still at 2.5 he can scream and it hurts your ears

 No.  He went straight to the NICU.  He had two collapsed lungs.
