In brief: 2 months old

The most common forms of chd which is ventricular septal defects, if large enough and non-restrictive would cause congestive heart failure at 1-2 months of age.
There are, however, forms of critical congenital heart disease that would present with chf, cyanosis, and/or shock within hours - few days after birth.

In brief: CHF

It depends on the congenital heart problem, it could be in infancy or build up over time to chf, the commonest congenital problems can be fairly benign in infancy and get worse with age, the more devatating congenital problems cause immediate problems with birth.
