Halacha exempts baby boys with serious injuries or illnesses from Pidyon Haben (see this answer). My question is whether a shalom Zachar Seudat mitzvah should be held for a baby boy like this?

  • A shalom zochor is not a seudas mitzvah?

  • The reasoning for a shalom zochor is brought in the Taz on SA YD 265:13 who writes that the practise of a shalom zochor is for people to visit the home of the newborn to comfort him over this loss of Torah. Surely this would be no different, even if a tereifa?

  • Practically the baby would be in a NICU or something and thus there's probably no point of doing one anyway
