Welcome to Penmai...Saridha.

The Annaprasana is generally done during the 6th month of the child.

Since your child is born in the month of January, you can perform this in the coming July month, ie., the 6th month of the child.

You have to prepare the Payasam with rice and sugar and your husband has to keep the child on his lap and feed this payasam in your son's mouth.

Few of your friends and relatives may be invited for this function.

After this, you can have a plate containing some jewels - which means the wealth, a pen and a book - which means education and a clay pot containing some soil - which means property, and this pot should be given to the child's hand (ie., he needs to touch it). This means that he is blessed with all the properties in his future life.

I think you are a Malayalee.

I have seen this Annaprasanna in the Guruvayoor temple where many parents start to give food for their child.

All the best for you and your son.

Hi Saridha,

In Our family, We do Annaprasana during the 7th month of child.
You will have to cook white pongal. Add little amount canesugar at the end. Offer this food to God. After done pooja, you can feed this food, in a very little amount to your child.

No problem Saridha......you can do it , starting from the 6th month of the child.

Now, you may do it in the August month itself, as your friend has suggested.Parasakthi's family is also following the same. Actually, we don't follow this tradition in our family. I have just learnt that the malyalees do this from the 6th month of the child. We just start giving the solid food to the child, without any function.

Please don't get confused.

Please don't worry Saridha.

Since you don't have these custom in your family and it is just a wish of yours to do this function, you can still continue it.

Now, this July is the 6th month for your son. Though the date has crossed (12th), never mind dear. That is why, I had earlier answered you in the June month itself to do it in July. but don't worry for it now.

You go ahead with the Annaprasanna custom and try to do it immediately.

You can do it in a simple method also.

Pray God with whole hearted feeling and pray the God for the welfare of your child.

All good things will happen. Go ahead dear.
