The 100 first days is a traditional celebration that marks the end of the first 3 months of life for a new baby — in other words, it’s the end of the fourth trimester! The traditional Chinese believe that the first 100 days is when the baby and mum are most vulnerable to the elements, so they were advised to stay indoors to avoid illness. Another tale explains that in the days of yore it was rare for a baby to survive the first 100 days, so when they did it was a cause for celebration!
Chinese, Korean and Japanese families typically celebrate the first 100 days.
