Annaprasanam is an important ceremony in a childs life, it’s the day that is chosen to feed the baby solid food. It is auspicious to give the child a sweet made of rice, like sweet Pongal or rice with sweet milk. It’s the beginning of the journey for the child to start taking steps to eat on his own.
Who should do this: Every parent must hold the child in their lap , both mother and father first feed the child, then all the parental relations feed the kid with the same rice in very small quantity.
When you should do this:This is done when the child is 5 months old , but for convenience it can be combined with Ayush Homam when the child turns 1 year.
