Abstract
Breast feeding is a pivotal part of child care which needs enormous importance. In Ayurveda, the procedure of breast feeding is described as a samskara of child which should be started with enchanting of mantras. Even during the Vedic Period, breast milk was thought to be a great meal for newborns. The Rigveda recommends breastfeeding after delivery while reciting Mantras. Under the topic of jatakarma, several ayurvedic literatures demonstrate the importance of breastfeeding. One of the updhatu of rasa is stanya, or breast milk, according to Ayurvedic literature. Breast milk has several health benefits for both the mother and the child. Breastfeeding should begin as soon as the baby is born. Breastfeeding is the most effective approach to care for a newborn. Understanding the Ayurvedic perspective on stanya provides valuable insights into the importance of breast feeding and highlights the holistic approach of Ayurveda towards the well-being of both mother and child. Further research and exploration in this area may contribute to enhancing lactation practices and optimizing the health of both mother and child. This article helps us to explain how we understand the Ayurvedic perspective of stanya and practices of breastfeeding.
