If one didn't shave the head of the newborn on the 7th day, can he do it any other day ? Also if one has not made aqiqa on the 7th day, can one do it any other day ? Also what is the status of doing both of above is it fard ?

Based on the Hadith of the Holy Prophet Sallallahu Alaihe Wa Sallam, it is considered Mustahab to shave a newborn's head on the 7th day and also to sacrifice one sheep or goat on behalf of a baby girl and two sheep or goats on behalf of the baby boy on the same day.
However if someone has missed that day or is unable to do it on the 7th day then he may do it on any other day.
