One could probably put the kapra to better use. Such as covering ones ears so one wouldn't ever have to hear you speak.

I think he's trying to make  the point of why at such a young age...they will have be worn on top of nappies/diapers, might look cute but hardly practical.

It's one way to get very young children to resent their religion and their traditions from the get-go. What form of cognition does a child of a few months possess that he or she could possibly be judged to be adhering to the particulars of their faith in that way? At that age it's akin to dressing up little dolls and showing them off to family and friends. I understand the need to start them off early, particularly in these irreligious times, but start with naam before anything else.

Absolutely. We also need to look at the purpose of Kakaaars as I mentioned in another post, where the footballer asked if he should remove his kirpaan during the game.

Such young children have no concept of their significance, no need to turn this into a pageant.

Well the other two of the OP's children were 3 and 2. But anyway, you have to clothe the children in some way or another. What could be wrong with clothing them in Sikh clothes? 

How could children resent their religion if, as you say, they don't have cognition in the first place?

People of every background do stuff to their children. Jews/Muslims snip parts of their children's penises off. Hindus shave their kids' hair off. Christians cut their children's hair.

What could possibly be wrong with wearing a kachera?

If they are not to wear a kachera, are you saying that they should "go commando"?

Having spoken to a Nihang chief, the relaxation given to bhujangis (Sikh children) in the matter of Sikh rehit is that they may wear pajamis before the age of 5. There is no relaxation in regards to going kachera-less.

While it's one thing for a child of less than 1/2 year to merely wear a shirt/kurta, I would not want to see a 3 year old's <banned word filter activated> dangling around in the Gurdwara Sahib. So I think that such a child's nakedness should be covered with a kachera.

The OP should be able to get some sewn up the next time she visits Amritsar. There's a Sikh tailor near the Langar entrance of Darbar Sahib.

practicality : instead of naali should put elastic (wide flat)in nefaa  so they can have independence of dealing with bathroom visits . until they are ready to deal with naala.

For those peeps who question bhen ji wanting to do this , frankly there is hardly kaparda in knickers for girls and boys , my daughter wears girl boxers as she feel uncovered in regular shape briefs and would quite happily switch to a kacchera . There is zero difference between boys boxers and kaccherey so they've never been fussed about wearing kaccherey. To be sure they'll never be speedo wearers out of personal choice.

OP I'd make your own , it is fairly simple stitching all straight lines and you can scale down the size to suit bhujangis .

I genuinely thought the kids were 2, 3, and 5 months, lmao. I went back and reread the original post, and it makes sense now, because unless she was growing the poor kids in plant pots, there's no way they could be that young!

That's fine; my mum dressed me in bana when I was 5. I had a tiny dastaar, mini kirpaan, chola, etc., on special religious occasions. Still, I would sound a warning that very young children shouldn't be wielded as religious accessories designed to virtue signal one's religious adherence. They aren't an extension of their parents' religiosity. Knowing our mindset as a community, we are prone to prioritising the external over the internal, and in that respect I'd argue since the child isn't fully aware of why they're being dressed up in that way, there's no spiritual benefit in doing so, because it's not a conscious choice on their part. However, if we're talking about "training" children to become accustomed to our ways and traditions, then starting them out early is a good thing.

    • well bro what does disassociate mean to you ...I heard seperation of ways , but also I understood it to be a grey area since canon law still maintains that they are married despite the dharmic arth of the instruction..
    • hobson's choice , if you have a preselected array who have blessing from on high by centre there is NO choice only eyewash ....even Kejriwal showed his true colours when he didn't oppose the transfer of Jaggi to Tihar Jail
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa. Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh! Often times I hear people say "SGGSJ doesnt say (insert topic) so it must be ok", and in the case of pre-marital sexual relations a dear friend of mine has made the same argument. My friend (non khalsa) argues that Bani specifically condemns rape, adultery, and polygamy, however isnt against sex outside of marriage, provided that both are not married to anyone, and have given consent. My friend likes to disregard anything outside SGGSJ.  He brings up tuks from Gurbani that specifically mention "others wives" to support the argument that its specifically about adultery, however I would argue, the English translation is very shallow, and in the context of Bani, "others wives" is also talking about anyone who isnt your wife, and isnt limited to adultery, but also anyone who isnt married.  Example 1:  Siri  Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 274 ਪਰ ਤ੍ਰਿਅ ਰੂਪੁ ਨ ਪੇਖੈ ਨੇਤ੍ਰ ॥ Par Thria Roop N Paekhai Naethr || ਪਰ means other ਤ੍ਰਿਅ means wife
        Example 2:  Siri  Guru Granth Sahib Ji, Ang 1013
      ਇਸਤ੍ਰੀ ਤਜਿ ਕਰਿ ਕਾਮਿ ਵਿਆਪਿਆ ਚਿਤੁ ਲਾਇਆ ਪਰ ਨਾਰੀ ॥
      Abandoning his own wife, he is engrossed in sexual desire; his thoughts are on the wives of others.   Context:  Its not just talking just about adultery, the English translations are limiting, generally the concept is to not covet another wife, in the context of Bani, doesn't mean you can have sexual relations with women who are not married. Our rehat and history make it clear that one cannot have any sexual relations outside of marriage. There is a specific reason the Guru had 10 forms over 200 years, it was to show Sikhs how to live and practically apply Bani, otherwise the SGGSJ would have been all compiled by Guru Nanak and there would be no long history of the Guru in his many forms.    The SGGSJ isnt a rule book, and isnt going to specifically ban everything that we know is immoral. Where in SGGS Ji does it say that Sri Guru Har Rai Sahib Ji was the 7th Guru Sahib after Sri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji? Why would a primary Sikh text not name him?  In terms of Gurbani, when taken into context, and even compared to rehat and our history, its clear that sexual relations outside of marriage are discouraged.    Do you agree with my argument? These are just a few tuks I decided to bring up, if anyone has any more, please feel free to share! 
    • Badal out, badnaam in...why do people vote so badly or 
    • Khalistan will be built from without , with blessings of world who know the true nature of sikhi as it almost a daily occurence to hear a good snippet about a Singh or Kaur either doing some sewa, good deed like samaritan or even when they are attacked verbally, physically or ideologically the new numbers of white and other cultural people stepping up to inform the culprits or support the victims. Nobody is so naive to believe that a govt wouldn't manipulate the media since they are seeing it done by Trump and May daily so with those eyes they are looking at 1984 with open eyes and questioning minds . Like Bhai Rama Singh ji said there will be a massive influx of sikhs from all nations and there will be harmony because of it so people will entrust their countries' futures with Guru Granth Sahib ji and Guru Panth ji
