Azaan and Iqamah for newborn


Asalamalaikum warehmatullahi wa barakatahu,

Is the azaan to be made in right ear and iqamah in left?
Should the baby be facing Qibla? Should the azaan and iqama be made before the nurses takes the baby away for cleaning or after in this case?

Jazakallah khair


A`udhu billahi min ash-shaytan ir-rajeem
Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem

wa `alaykum salam,

The child is to be named on the seventh day. No harm if the child is named before seventh day or on the day when the child was born after being washed. Adhan is to be made in his right ear and iqamah in his left, facing Qibla.
