Safety 1st Guide 65 Sport - can a newborn use it?

I've read about several different seats where even though they say a 5lb baby can can fit in them the first harness slot is not low enough for a newborn. Is this seat like that too or can a newborn actually fit in it? If not how soon can it be used?

Generally, no. The bottom slots are about 10". For most babies, it will be around 6mths or before they fit.

Just thought i'd come back and update this since we actually put the baby, my niece, in the car seat today (Safety 1st Guide 65 Sport). It was a Christmas present and we opened it early. The harness, in the bottom slots, was slightly below her shoulders so she fits in it fine at 2 months old going on 3 months.
