Question about Muslim circumcision

In Jewish circumcision, the baby is 8 days (at least), counting the day of birth as day one. So a boy born on a Wednesday would have his bris the next Wednesday. I have heard that Muslims circumcise on the 7th day (or 14th, 21st, or any other day after the 7th), and I have long wondered if the day of birth is day one or day zero. So, a boy born on a Wednesday would be circumcised when, Tuesday or Wednesday?
