Boy or girl, boy or girl…. Which is it? Many parents enjoy the ups and downs of trying to guess the gender game when it comes to a baby.

For others selecting the sex of their baby is serious business. Believe it or not, there are scientifically grounded strategies for influencing the sex of your baby one way vs. another. No, this isn’t magic it’s just body chemistry.

Your diet can actually influence the pH of your body, making your vaginal secretions either alkaline or acidic, which can influence your chances for having a boy or girl.

Now, that said, changing your diet alone will not guarantee that you have a boy or a girl. But it can turn the tide in your favor if you are anxious for one sex or another.

Girl Baby Diet

You should eat foods rich in calcium and magnesium.
Here are some dietary suggestions for mom’s who want to conceive a girl baby:

– Eggs
– Milk or Milk Products
– Salt Free Food
– Ice Cream
– Tangerines
– Grapefruit
– Apples
– Lettuce
– Carrots/Veggies

Boy Baby Diet

You should eat foods rich in sodium and potassium.

– Salted meat products
– Fish
– Sausage
– Rice
– Potatoes
– Beans
– Peaches
– Bananas
– Apricots
– Melons
– Tomatoes
– Sweet Corn

Of course it is not guaranteed that you will have a boy or girl simply by changing your diet. Other things you can do to influence the gender of your baby is to time intercourse. Research suggests that timing intercourse a few days before ovulation will result in a girl, whereas timing intercourse the day of or day before ovulation is more likely to result in a boy. This is because the male Y-sperms are considered weaker and will die off before you ovulate if you have intercourse earlier in your cycle. There are other studies that suggest that men who wear tighter underwear or keep their scrotum warmer are more likely to have girl babies, because the boy’s Y-sperm need a cooler temperature to survive.

Ultimately there are no guarantees when it comes to choosing the gender of your baby. There are some scientific methods that involve ‘spinning’ sperm, but many of these are still under research and can be quite expensive.

No matter what method you choose, remember to have fun. The end result of your efforts is a beautiful baby regardless of their sex.

  1. I have to write a problem solution essay and I need help. I have no idea what to topic to talk about. Plus I need a solution that already works and has been proven correct.

  2. I saw a woman breastfeading her 6 year old son. I now its most likely no longer about the child at this point and more about the woman, but is there any state where this is illegal. I live in washington state and I am shocked that the child got up out of his chair, after eating his grand slam breakfast, pulled down his mothers shirt and said mommy i want ninny or what ever he said.
    I know this child is 6 because the womans sister was sitting next to me and they were at the other table. They all thought nothing of it. I specifaly asked how old the child was.
    It does not bother me that the mother and child have a close bond! I myself had a very close bond with my mother (even though I was not breast fed at all), until her death in 2005. What bothers me is that there are studies to show that the benefits of the breast milk begin to decline once that child begins to produce and regulate their immune system. There are many ways to bond with your children. I do not feel that allowing your toddler child you 8 yo, to request something that is infact yes socially unexceptable is appropriate. Are you saying then if i child decides not to potty train its ok to change the child untill 8, because the mother feels it brings them closer?
    One more thing wishmaster, I do feel that breastfeeding should be something done because it benefits the child and their health. NOT BECAUSE THE CHILD ENJOYS IT.
    Wishmaster I have done more research into this, it sounds like the only reason you feel breastfeeding until this 8 yo child is because it helps with parent child bond. Well let me tell you non of the articals I have been reading support it as a nutritional alternative the most compelling one being

    this artical. Please read it.
    Now as for your story about smoking while pregnant! I have one question, have you looked in a news paper or watch tv in the last 10 years? If you had you would know that your comparison of these two things do not hinge on social exceptance, rather on fetal safety. YOU WILL DAMAGE YOUR CHILD IF YOU SMOKE WHILE PREGNANT. Its not socially unexeceptable because its rude, its socially unexeceptable because its dangerouse. Please read this artical also before you have any more children.

    Where as I dont disagree that our western culture has made many things taboo in our society such as woman shaving their armpits and legs, I will have to say that our minds are not in the gutter. Those cultures who’s dietary needs are different from ours, meens they may have to breastfeed longer. I dont see any shortage of food on the average americans table, for them to claim that their child needs the nutrition. Thats just not the case. In some third world country where calcium rich foods, or other nutrients are not readil available then yes this is exceptable, but do you really think that 8 or 6 year old is not getting what she needs on a daily basis because if thats the case the mothers should have the children taken away because they cannot provide basic food groups.

    I do not feel and don’t misinterpret what I have said this is not a sexual thing in my opinion. However the rant you went on about is from the ages of under 4. That may be so for development purposes, fine BF until they are almost four. But you cant honestly believe that a 6yo child and an 8yo child that gets up goes to school comes home and wants an after noon snack of BM, is getting much more bonding out of it. This is the age when I feel the children should be finding other ways to bond with parents, such as learning, playing games, reading a book cuddling on the couch, having total family time that involves all the members. Things like this that don’t have to be materialistic can promote a good healthy bond between parents and children. I don’t feel that this is abuse I have never once said that. However it does raise concern for me, on who is benefiting from it more, the child or the parent. If you have not done so you need to watch the utube video that was posted
