What is the youngest age a person can be to receive the sacrament of Confirmation?

I believe that in the east, children are confirmed at the same time they are baptized, shortly after birth. So there is no minimum age.

Birth. Or, if you want to be picky, as soon as the baptism ritual is complete after birth, which can be under a minute if there's an emergency.

My understanding is that children in Mexico are often confirmed at Baptism as well.

Also, a child in danger of death can be confirmed by any priest. I've confirmed a one-year-old under those circumstances.
