Default Border crossing with newborn

I wonder if anyone could help/advise me. I have just given birth to my 2nd child , I am originally from the U.K along with my fiance and my first was also born in the U.K . We all have U.K passports and we are in canada on a Temporary work Permit. We usually get grocerys in the states, will I need to get a Canadian passport to cross with the newborn or can I cross with his birth certificate?

Children under 16 don't need a passport, just proof of citizenship (assuming they're Canadian or American). So the birth certificate will do.

And here's the proof:

https://help.cbp.gov/app/answers/det...3D/suggested/1

What does a Canadian Citizen child/children traveling into the United States require?

As of June 1, 2009, U.S. and Canadian citizen children under age 16 arriving by land or sea from contiguous territory may also present an original or copy of his or her birth certificate* (issued by the Vital Records Department in the state where he or she was born), a Consular Report of Birth Abroad, a Naturalization Certificate, or a Canadian Citizenship Card.

*We will accept a hospital issued birth certificate only if the child is a newborn and the Vital Records Department birth certificate has not yet arrived.
