Oh boy, that recommendation by age, again… To be honest, I don’t get it – is it so hard to indicate the recommended height/size of the baby?I am quite sure the manufacturer must have tried it – and it does not matter that they state on their website that the ‘age is only estimative’ and that ‘every baby is different’ (don’t you say!). Moreover, the Mini version is not that ‘mini’ in fact, which you can easily guess from the recommended age range. And once you see it yourself, you could say that it is actually ‘maxi’ – I think that many other manufacturers would call a carrier of such a size ‘Toddler’ (just to explain my comment about the names of the sizes of Mia carriers being a bit illogical). Terminology aside, my 18-months-old Emilka, currently wearing size 74/80 would still have quite a lot space to grow in this carrier so I am willing to agree with the maximum recommended age of 2,5 years. On the other hand, it was still possible to adjust the back panel a little in all the dimensions to make it smaller; however, I would not recommend this size of the carrier for a ‘regular’ 6-months-old, but it could fit the bigger ones.
