before my dd was born I made hers 6". I ended up folding them (could have gone 5") but she grew more in length than width so I was able to put them on her longer. She is almost 6 months and they still fit her...but they are capris lol

I used the Wonderpants pattern size xs and made the inseam 7" - at 2.5 months they fit perfectly, but she has been wearing them since birth. I rolled the cuff and didn't worry about them being too long because she wasn't exactly going anywhere! So if you want a perfect fit right away max 6" but if you want an inseam that you can work with and will last awhile I think 7" is great.
