Ruling 2014

If after sunset on the eve of Eid al‑Fiṭr a woman gives birth to a child, it is not obligatory to give fiṭrah for the child. However, if before sunset a woman gives birth or marries and the mother or wife are considered dependants of the father or husband, he must give their fiṭrah; but if they are dependants of someone else, then it is not obligatory for him. If they are not dependants of anyone, then the fiṭrah of the woman is obligatory for herself and there is no obligation to give fiṭrah for the child.
