wsalam,

Might be good to ask your Imam if you'd like a Fiqh answer. Is there a specific reason you're saving it or just sentimentality??

did you weigh it yet and gave away its weight in silver in Sadaqa?

Not sure why you would want to keep it? You know it is covered with birthing slime and other nasties that come out during birth?
It isn't seen as clean. You know that don't you? Most people bury it.

People bury it because they're afraid someone else could take it and use it for black magic. (true scary stuff) so maybe it is better that you get rid of it. Maybe take a picture or a video of baby with her first hair to remember by?

afterbirth washes off.

You don't peel a baby's skin off because its been thro the birthing process.


And when My servants question thee concerning Me, then surely I am nigh. I answer the prayer of the suppliant when he crieth unto Me. So let them hear My call and let them trust in Me, in order that they may be led aright. Surah 2  Verse 186

Assalam Alakium everyone:) I'm the original poster to the question. I posted anonymous because I had trouble login in on my cell phone:p   Anyway, my daughter is 2 1/2 years old, Alhumduillah, and we trimmed her hair a week or 2 ago. I wanted to know if it was ok to keep a bit of her hair for memories as its her first haircut. We have a memento box for her.   Am I suppose to weigh her hair and donate everytime we cut her hair?

When a baby is born on the seventh day it is sunnah to shave the head and give the hairs weight in silver (or the monetary equivalent) in alms.
