Q. In Islam when a baby is born do they have 6 days and 12 days and how long do you wait before you bathe the baby for the first time? Also if it’s a girl when you shave her head, what do you do with the hair?
A. No, there are no 6 days and 12 days in Islam. You can bathe the baby on the first day or second day, as long as it does not affect the health of the baby. Shave the head on the 7th day and you can put the hair in running water so that it can flow away with the water.
And Allah knows best.
