Ussually, in south india we go for annapraasana (introduction to solids) during even months for boy babies and odd months for girl babies, (or) in 6th month 6th day. I thought 6th month 6th day is too early for the kid to crawl/think to pick any item.
So we have decided to go by the months logic and chosen 9th month for Nithya.
Jun14th 7:19 is the muhurath and i have chosen SImhachalam temple as the venue.
The ceremony includes placing of a few things infront of the baby to see what she holds first time. This is followed by pooja by Purohith.
The items we have placed are:
3. food items.
8. Parvannam (Kheer).
Nithya picked items in following order:
3. Paravannam (Kheer)
5. Food items.
