    Red face in their infancy

    As far as I know, in their infancy meansquite new, not widely established yet.

    1. The disscussion over this ABC subject is still in their infancy and no conclusion has been made.
    2. The implementation of this policy is still in their infancy, so I have no comment at the moment.

    Are the above sentences OK?

    Re: in their infancy

    in their infancy may means " in the beginning".
    when something starts happening,at the first stage,we should call it "in their infancy"
    am I correct?

    Re: in their infancy

    If it is a singular thing like a discussion or an implementation it would be in its infancy.
