The celebration of baby's full month is to celebrate both the baby and mother's finishing confinement period. Chinese tradition in fact believes that your child turns 1 year old on the 30th day after he or she is born! It is also time for parents to announce and introduce your new baby to your friends and family through celebrating this joyous occasion.

Widespread superstition also meant that families would be reluctant to announce their baby’s birth until he or she made it to the full month, in fear of jinxing the wee one.
