The answer to your question is as follows

Aqeeqa performed at the seventh day of birth is considered Sunnah. If it is not done at that day, then it does not take the value of Sunnah. However Ulama says if somebody, who could not do it at the time, wants to do it in days later, he should organize it a day before the birthday. E.g. the child was born on Friday then the Aqeeqa party should be organized on Thursday.

And Allah (swt) knows the Best
