But if there are, it would all depend on the local customs and habits of the region that the child lives in. Once the birth of the child is over, smoke is used to clean the labor room. The child first food is the juice of the palmdates, chewed by any Muslim priest. The juice is applied on the upper jaw of the child. Only after this the baby can feed off the mother’s breast milk.
