    less than vs. under?

    Hello teachers.

    Would you take a look at the following?

    1. Her baby, who was less than one year old, was in her highchair.

    Which of the following can mean almost the same as #1?

    2. Her baby, who was under one year old, was in her highchair.
    3. Her baby, who was under one year of age, was in her highchair.
    4. Her baby, who was under one, was in her highchair.

    Thank you very much in advance for your help on this.

    yam.

    'Her baby aged under one was in her highchair.'

    Is this concise version acceptable?
