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.
