Question: 
I live in a cold country. My baby is four months old. Can I use Nalpamaradhi thailam for him? 
Is it okay to use, as the climate here s cold? Also I was advised that not to use any soap for baby so is it must that I should wash off this thailam using soap. I am now applying coconut oil and don’t use any soap. 
Answer: 

You can use Nalpamaradi tailam even in a cold climate country. 
But I suggest to wash off with some  mild baby soap or at least Chickpea flour (gram flour / Besan), while bathing. 
It is very important to get rid of the oil while bathing, or else baby may catch cold. 
I do not think just hot water wash will get rid of the applied oil.

Q: Is it harmful to take shilajit with chyawanprash?
Answer: 
Chyawanprash and Shilajit can be consumed together, if your doctor has prescribed it. But because they both are hot in nature, it is best to take Chyawanprash with milk. This will reduce the intensity of hotness. Read more about Chyawanprash -

Q: what is the difference between aswagandhadi lehyam and ajaswagandhi lehyam ?
Answer: 
Ajaswagandhadi lehyam contains non veg ingredients in it - Read about it here - http://easyayurveda.com/2009/11/10/ajaswagandhadi-leham/

Ashwagandhadi lehyam is the veg version of it. Read about it here - http://ayurmedinfo.com/2012/02/09/ashwagandhadi-lehyam-uses-side-effects-dose-and-how-to-prepare/ 

Both are quite similar in action. But, because of the non veg ingredients, Ajaswagandhadi does a better job in improving muscle strength. 

Having said that, some companies name Ajaswagandhadi lehyam as Ashwagandhadi lehyam, which is bit confusing. Always check the label for non veg ingredients, with this product.
