hi dharini normally , for the 1st birthday, panchakacham is not tied for the baby. only a silk small dhoti is just tied around. if you are particular about panchakacham, readymade dhoties are available for kids which will be easy to wear. WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST AND A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOUR SON

The Dhoti is a sheet of white cloth worn by tucking the cloth at five different points on the waist and bringing it under the legs like a pajama and hence it is also called Panchakachcham (cloth tucked at five points)

Iyer men traditionally wear veshtis, which cover them from waist to foot. These are made of cotton and sometimes silk. Veshtis are worn in different styles. They are worn in typical brahminical style during religious ceremonies. This style is popularly known as panchakacham[76](from the sanskrit terms pancha and kacham meaning "five yards" as the length of the panchakacham is five yards in contrast to the veshtis used in non-ceremonial daily life is, by contrast, four or eight cubits long). They sometimes wrap their shoulders with a single piece of cloth known as angavastram (body-garment). In earlier times, Iyer men who performed austerities also draped their waist or chests with deer skin or grass.

Procedure to dress in panchakam –

first you have to take 8 muzam veshti and spread it fully hold the veshti behind your back and leave more than half to your left. then encircle your tummy and tuck the veshti at the waist leaving the two ends free like wings. now take the right wing and fold the edge near the waist like visiri and continue to fold the broad end similarly and tuck the madippu in the nabi area. repeat same for the left wing and tuck the visiri at the back. tada you have panja kacham!!

Different explanation –

so imagine a rectangle with R,L,RB and LB as 4 sides r right l lft rb is right bottom etc, L L1 R1 R

U LB RB U= you standing in the middle of veshti now hold with your hands LI An R1 as if u have wings bring L1 to right of navel and tuck . now take R1 an tuck over the veshti to the left of navel. now two ends are hanging from your stomach. now fold from R1 to R an R to RB by keeping 4-5 inch folds.then tuck the resultant in the nabi area. repeat for L1 to L an L LB an take it between your legs and tuck in the back Voila u r ready

this is the pictorial way of wearing

Dear Dharini, Get the ready made Panchakachams available. It is easy to wear them for the kid, instead of tying a real veshti. You can wear the ready made Panchakacham even after this occassion.
