you are eligible to apply for OCI for the infant, it can take usually up to 30 days, but can be expedited in cases of emergency and you need to contact the Indian Consulate in the US prior to travel. You need not provide copy of current US passport, copies of parents proof of renunciation, copy of parents us passport or OCI cards, naturalization certificate,proof of Indian origin from the checklist. All that is required to provide are copies of parents Indian passport, valid visa status and rest as per checklist on the India Immigration website. See:
