How do I make a baby boy?

How do I make a baby boy?

You're kidding right: There is no special way to pre-pick gender. The swimmers decide the sex & the first one in makes the pick. They don't care how they get there they just go for the prize. You have a 50/50 chance with each conception. All the myths out there about special timing/foods/position are bunk. ...Read more

My infant (boy) is 7 and half and his hb is 10.5 against 11+ .. Is that level healthy? He was breastfed.

Nadir: Term infants generally reach a nadir (low) hemoglobin around 9 months, about the time when maternal stores of iron have been depleted. Timing of this drop varies some with premature babies and degree of drop may be more dramatic if mother was anemic during pregnancy . Although not technically considered anemic at 10.5, it may drop further over the next several weeks. ...Read more

My boy is 47days old.I wanna start using pampers from his 2months age. Babies have very sensitive skin. Would be there any side affects for this?

My boy is 47days old.I wanna start using pampers from his 2months age. Babies have very sensitive skin. Would be there any side affects for this?

No problem: It should be fine to use a larger diaper for a smaller baby. The opposite (using a small diaper for a big baby) can be too tight and rub on the skin more. ...Read more

If you lose one testicle, can you still make both boy babies and girl babies?

If you lose one testicle, can you still make both boy babies and girl babies?

Yes you can: Sex of a baby is determined by the sperm. 50% of a man's sperm carry a y chromosome, which after fertilization will result in boy, and likewise 59% carry an x chromosome which will result in a girl. Most men with a single testicle are quite fertile. Good luck. ...Read more

How can you tell if your having a boy or a girl.By the way your carrying or it or by the way the other babies inter act with the fetus?

How can you tell if your having a boy or a girl.By the way your carrying or it or by the way the other babies inter act with the fetus?

Neither.: It doesn't matter how you are carrying the baby, whether s/he kicks, whether a gold ring dangling from a chain goes back and forth or around in circles, or any other old wives tale. Each pregnancy you have exactly a 50:50 chance of getting one or the other gender. Sex can be determined by ultrasound or amniocentesis (some of the amniotic flood is take with a needle and tested). ...Read more

My infant boy has picked up an ugly cough. How can I treat it? He's 23w (19 corrected) 2nd vaccines done 2 days ago. No fever or vomitting

My infant boy has picked up an ugly cough. How can I treat it? 
He's 23w (19 corrected) 2nd vaccines done 2 days ago. No fever or vomitting

Treatment varies: There are no cold and cough treatments for infants. All of the over the counter medications have no effect and can be harmful to your baby. First have your baby examined at his Doctor to make sure that he does not have any signs of infection. If symptoms are viral then normal saline for the nose and humidified air can be helpful. If you are breastfeeding that is the best medicine. ...Read more

Is it safe to occasionally expose my infant to 3rd hand smoke? My infant boy lives with me, the mother, in a smoke-free home. I was wondering if it was safe enough for my baby to occasionally visit his father's house? Reason being, his dad is a smoker who

Is it safe to occasionally expose my infant to 3rd hand smoke? My infant boy lives with me, the mother, in a smoke-free home. I was wondering if it was safe enough for my baby to occasionally visit his father's house? Reason being, his dad is a smoker who

Second hand smoke: In a perfect world, there would be no tobacco exposure for anyone to be exposed to, especially young infants and children. I would try to insist on no direct exposure, meaning no smoking in the house or car, and wearing clothing free of the scent of cigarettes when holding a baby. Try to present facts in a calm fashion because it is so important for children to know their fathers! ...Read more

Why is it ethically wrong to do elective gender selection?im not infertile but the majority of babies on both sides of our fam are boys-we want a girl

Why is it ethically wrong to do elective gender selection?im not infertile but the majority of babies on both sides of our fam are boys-we want a girl

Simple but complex: It would be an entire semester course at college, but only space for one thought here. For all-boy families, it WOULD BE NICE to have a girl, and vice versa. The danger is in wanting something too much, and in the need to respect other people's wants if others are to respect our wants. Many people value the life of a boy over a girl. To fight that societal problem, we should not select either sex. ...Read more

My friend has a normal 5 yr old baby girl....But other 2 pregnancies she had baby boys with brain tumors.The babies died right after. Whts reason?

Unusual: Brain tumors in general are relatively rare in the general population. For there to be two in one family is unusual. She should have some work-up by her neurologist and a geneticist to see if there is some genetic syndrome that puts her and her family at increased risk for brain tumors. ...Read more

There are risks: Assisted reproductive technology increases the risk for prematurity and low birth weight (as well as other factors) mainly because of the higher rate of twins and triplets etc. My neonatology colleagues are kept quite bust caring for very small babies from reproductive technology. There may also be an increased risk for birth defects due to so called epigenetic effects. ...Read more

Having babies with your second cousin?

Not as bad as 1st : It is estimated that each of us are born carrying 3-4 recessive genes that can produce a metabolic problem if they show up in a newborn. (cf, sickle cell, others) pregnancies between closely related people are more likely to see these come out. As second cousins you are less likely than first to have this happen, but are not immune to the issue. ...Read more
