Anyone giving swarna prashana and kumara kalpa to their babies? I want to know more about them

im giving suvarnaprashan to my son for over 8 mnths now, aftr much of research, fdbck and opinions. havent heard of the 2nd name u took though.

how old is ur son? do u feel it has improved ur son's immunity? my baby is 6 month old planning to give

I'm not giving either. I prefer giving nutrients with food only at this time that he is a toddler.

Isn't it helpful if it builds their immunity? Atleast we won't end up giving antibiotics every time kids catch cold or decelop mild fever?

my son turned 4 in july. started the dose in December, 2015. To quote a granny (wen I asked her opinion in the immunity thing) --- Immunity building takes time and there r visible results after approx a yr with regular doses (she had opted for monthly dose for her grandchild, who was 8 yr old then).

she went on to nag my ignorance stating that there is a reason that suvarnprashan is part of our culture (my research concluded that it sure is parr of culture but mainly in west and south india, and only handful of ppl know about it (forget going for it) in east or north india. The docs giving these doses --- I hve checked with 5 docs --- admit that since it is gold bhasm, it is taxing on digestive system, hence monthly doses are more preferred.

it isnt to be given if the child has fvr, upset stomach etc

my son was on bf for a very short time and that too wasnt fed the colostrum. He always had cold cough n fvr like after every 15-20 days. I tried homeopathy course for a year, which didnt help. then I tried ayurveda which helped immensely, like in a month's time I cud see the result. I followed his new found healthy self with suvarnaprashan. cut to present --- December, 2015 I visited his paediatrician in mumbai n then yrsterday in delhi. in between no health issues. also, inspite of his many location and weather change (from mumbai's nice weather in December to delhi's nail biting cold in january, to extreme hot temperature of bihar in april may), his healtg did not suffer -- not even a single bout of cold or lethargy or anything

Having told you so much n still left out sooo much, I wud suggest wait till he turns 2 or 2 and half yr old so that his digestive system is more stable and more sound. at this time his diet requires lot of shuffling and changing frm bf to liquids to solids. Do not tax the baby's digestive system more.

gr8 thank u so much sneha

my pleasure Pooja, im glad I cud share my personal experience, hope it helps you in making sound decision for ur baby. Wishing good health to u n ur fmly. Thanks, Priya for sharing this query :)
