The naming ceremony takes place within a month after the baby is born. Then onwards it is only annual birthdays are observed with colour and pagentry. We usually conduct the parties every year till the boy or girl reaches 15. Thereafter he/she goes to college and would like to celebrate the birthday in their own way.

I think that would kind of confuse a chile to be wished happy birthday every month - coz it isn't their BIRTH day. We just took a photo of our daughter on a monthly basis (the 6th of every month) until she was 12 months old & now there will be photos whenever she does something cute or funny but nothing other than that. If you continue with the gifts every month she will begin to expect it monthly & that's not what you want to happen, i think it's best to just leave the gift giving & birthday wishes on their ACTUAL birthday :) Each to their own of course but i just didn't see a point in doing it monthly or anything, it's not like she knew what was going on & even if she woked it out it would probably just be too confusing.

I didn't buy my son presents every month, but I did take him to get his picture taken every month until he was a year old. Once he started eating table food, we went out to eat every month after he had his picture taken. Now he's 19 months old. We did take him to get his picture taken and out to eat when he turned 18 months. We probably will again for his 21 month, too, just because we will be doing Christmas pictures, then. Of course for his second birthday we are going to have pictures taken and a party and presents and everything. And for that year, we will probably go every 3 months for pictures, because my husband will be deployed when my baby is 2 years and 3 months old. Once he turns 3, we will probably only do pictures 2 or 3 times a year, and only really celebrate his actual birthday.
