My girlfriend wants to be a guy. We were wondering if we can have babies after she becomes a guy. By the way, we are both girls.?
Adoption, or...: Great question. Even though your mate is going to be a male, she will not have 'sperm' to mate with your egg. Thus, no natural birth is possible between you. However, one may be able to secure an outside 'sperm donor' to assist in the fertilization process. Best to discuss all this with your family physician who can direct you to the right specialists. ...Read more
My girlfriend wants a sex change and i was wondering if we can have babies after it? By the way, we are both girls.
Gender Reassignment: There are various degrees of gender reassignment. She will not be able to inseminate you, nor will you be able to have a child of mixed genes between the two of you. Outwardly she may appear to be a man but her genes will always be a woman's. If she chooses to keep her female genital (vagina, uterus, ovaries)trans she too will be able to conceive, but again with a male sperm donor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My girlfriend wants a sex change and i was wondering if we can have babies after it. By the way, we are both girls.?
No, won't work!: If your partner is truly transgender, then he would be your boyfriend, right? But as a f-m transman, there is no functioning penis and no testicles to produce sperm, so no babies are possible without a sperm donor. "sex change" is not an operation, but a complex hormonal, psychological, and social process that often involves surgical gender reassignment surgery, but no sperm-producing penis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How come it that these new school doctors are telling the young girls not to give the babies water ?
Misinformation: Breast milk is 75% water and formula is 50% water so somehow the notion that infants do not need extra water got born. They do not need much- 1-2 oz a day to flush the system. Too much water is empty calories and can fill them up and reduce their milk intake...So a little water is fine. ...Read more

I want next baby boy.. Any thing you can help me out with diet or sex time or position.? I got two girls.
Nothing specific: It is the swimmer(sperm) who gets there first that determines the sex of the baby. There is no special position, tea, day of the month or whatever else you heard that makes any difference.There are a lot of myths out there about gender selection ; all work half the time. If you are not pregnant after a year of trying, consult with the OB or a fertility center. ...Read more

Limited choices: Some ivf centers offer embryo selection and implantation that can assist you on this issue.However, this is expensive and not 100% successful technology. Your chances at any conception run 50% for either sex. You may be better off trying the natural route and accepting what you get. If you are not ready to accept another possible girl into the family, quit now. ...Read more
Keep breast-feeding: A new mom will lose weight as long as she breastfeeds her baby, and she eats only as many calories as needed to maintain her pre-pregnant weight. For example, if she was 120 pounds before pregnancy and is now 145 pounds, she should eat just enough for a 120 lb woman. Her 25 lb excess will be gradually used up in the production of breastmilk (25 ounces of breastmilk contains about 500 calories). ...Read more

Common: The face of infants is often in contact with clothing and blankets and spit up. All these things can couse minor rashes on the face. Use a wash cloth frequently it helps. If it is very severe see your doctor there are medicines but we try to use them sparingly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are they really?: "the devil's in the details." boys are more likely to be born prematurely, and they are more likely to be small for gestational age. All other things being equal, there does appear to be a small gender gap. Research continues, yet we still don't really know why. I would submit that ours is to pray for healthy, full-term babies, and to appreciate what g-d sends us, however small, boy or girl. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
