    The bottom harness slot is about 10in. My daughter fit (barely) at birth. I've seen 1yos who are too small in the torso.

    My dd hit the bottom of the straps at 3.5 wks. She had a super long torso.

    I didn't try DS until he was 5 wks old. He was clearly over the bottom of the straps by then, but I don't know exactly when he fit.
