Giving azaan into a new born baby's ear

Q: Is it sunnah to give azaan into a new born baby’s ear and is there any hadith provided?

A: Yes, it is sunnah. The Hadith appears in Sunan Tirmizi that when Hazrat Hasan (radhiyallahu anhu) was born, Rasulullah (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) gave the azaan in his ear.

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