Qur'aan khatam 40 days after childbirth

Q: Whats the ruling on a new born child? We performed aqeeqah after 7 days, gave some food in sadaqah and we had a Quraan khatam after 40 days. My question is about the 40 days thing, is it cultural or an Islamic sunnah?

A: It is a baseless practice.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
