Answer

If you did not do the Aqeeqah for your daughter at the time of her birth, you may do it now. It is advisable to maintain the seven day order in doing the Aqeeqah. Your daughter was born on a Monday, the seventh day will also be Monday. If it is difficult to perform the Aqeeqah on Monday, it may be done on any day of the week.
