It is customary to perform punyakavachanam on the 11th day after the childbirth. The expenses for this are borne by the boy's side. The baby is given a bath and placed in a muram( a traditional plate like tool usually made of bamboo used for dehusking grains ). After this, the baby's mother can see the baby only after her bath. The mother is made to take oil bath. As soon as she finishes bath, a savory dish is given to her. This is called 'Thula Poosuvadhu'. Then, hand over the baby to the mother in her arms. Watching this is considered good( visesham ). The girl's family needs to buy new dresses for the newborn, the new mother and father.

It is customary to keep a pair of paruppu thengai along with coconut, fruit and betel leaf in the manai. It is also customary to make jewels for the baby. The expenses for the priest and food is taken care of by the boy's family. Also, the boy's family needs to do viraidhanam to all the guests by giving them a 25 paise coin placed in paddy. The Jaathakaranam and namakaranam for the baby are to be performed as per the individual family tradition. That evening, thottil( cradle ) is placed. For this, place a tray spread with paddy beneath the cradle. In it, write the baby's name. The baby's mother and others should repeat the name of the baby in the baby's ears three times. Line the cradle with a silk saree and then place either sweet payaru sundal or kothukadalai sundal as per family tradition in the head side of the baby. The sundals can either be tied in a cloth or kept in a small bowl and placed either on the cradle or beneath it in the head side. Invite women to sing and given vethalai-pakku( betel leaf and betel nut ). Then, take harathi.

Its better to invite a pandit to perform those things. They know it better and you will get the satisfaction.
