I think you know the answer to the question, as you have given many answers to similar questions, however Psalms 51, explains David through the Holy Spirit says he was conceived in iniquity or sin and in transgression. The sin nature all humans are conceived in comes from the fall. This particular Psalm is when David was confronted by the Prophet Nathan after he had committed adultery with Bathsheba and had her husband sent to the front lines of battle hoping he would be killed. The Holy Spirit convicted David and made him aware of all his sin, even to the core of birth and onward. David sought forgiveness and was forgiven, but God toke their baby, and here we see God's provision for lives taken before as termed " the age of accountability' as recorded in 2 Samuel 12. We don't always understand why, but we must trust God and His word.
The sense in which a person is “sinful at birth” (Ps. 51:5, NIV) is by way of inclination, not by way of moral action. All persons are “by nature children of wrath” (Eph. 2:3) because they are born with a tendency to sin, but they are not born in sin in reality. The condemnation over the head of everyone who comes into Adam’s race is judicial guilt, not personal guilt. We stand condemned before God because “all sinned” in Adam our representative (Rom. 5:12). --See more by Norman Geisler & Thomas Howe @ https://defendinginerrancy.com/bible-difficulties/
