Smriti Sajwan* and Ajay Pratap Chauhan
Kaumarbhritya is one of the primary disciplines of Ayurveda in Ashtanga Ayurveda. Various Acharya mention numerous types of Sanskara in Ayurvedic, in which 16 Sanskara or rites of passage are conducted in the current period from birth to death in a hindu nation. Ayurveda defines Sanskara as "Samskaraohi Gunaantradhyanam," which means "adding a quality in an individual's body, mind, and intellect so that he may become a full-fledged member of the community." Balyakaleen Sanskara are not just religious ceremonies, but they were also intended at preparing the newborn for the extra-uterine world, avoiding sickness, and increasing the child's immune. All of these Sanskaraa have been practised since the Vedic times. As a result, the term Sanskara implies the concept of growth and development, as well as the assessment of developmental milestones. Sanskara, then, refers to the study of a growing child's developmental milestones and the notion of growth and development. A comprehensive approach to a child's health and early immune stimulation may be developed with the aid of routine practises for kids.
