Whether you’re still waiting to pop, or Baby’s already here, you’re probably thinking about your little one’s full moon celebration. This joyous occasion to mark a baby’s first month of life is significant as traditionally, it was believed that a baby is most vulnerable during the first month of life. The full month celebration then commemorates and ensures their continued health and wellbeing. It often includes a gathering and/or gifts — baby full month cakes (满月饼) and packages (满月礼盒) — delivered to family and friends. Stick to the traditional (like red eggs and ang ku kueh) or try something contemporary (like cupcakes and brownies). Whichever you prefer, this list of baby full month cakes and packages will have one to suit your taste, theme, and budget.
