Welcome to the Boy Girl Diet Family Mattox!

With 3 nieces, 1 daughter, 3 sisters...we wanted a boy in the family. The diet was hard but do-able (and I was 100% committed to not cheating) seeing as the foods listed were never in my regular diet. I am proud to say that we are parents to a beautiful baby boy!!!!! He is the first grandson on either side and is spoiled rotten! I have already passed this website on to friends of mine. All of your information was very helpful...and what a success! We couldn't be happier! Thanks! I might even try it again if we decide to have another baby!

Diet can boost chance of having a baby girl: new research

Diet can boost chance of having a baby girl: new research
Monday 03 January 2011

A diet rich in fruit, vegetables and rice can help women have girl babies, according to a new Dutch study.

The research, published on website Reproductive Biomedicine Online, says 81% of the 32 women in the study gave birth to a daughter after following a diet high in calcium and low in sodium.

The women were also asked to try and conceive at a particular time in their cycle.

‘It is important that both diet and timing are followed correctly, which requires of the mother both willpower and meticulousness,’ the researchers said.

The research was carried out for a company which helps parents choose the sex of their baby using natural methods.


More New Research- Girl Diet!

Eating a diet rich in calcium and magnesium in the weeks prior to conceiving, might result in having a baby girl, claimed researchers. It is established fact that type of sperm that fertilizes the egg of women is accountable for the sex determination of the baby. But the mineral substance of would-be-father’s blood has no effect on the sex determination.

However, it is the mineral substance of would-be-mother’s blood that decided if the egg will be amenable to sperm bearing XX chromosomes, leading to a girl child or XY chromosomes, leading to baby boy. To analyze the effects of the vegetarian diet team of researchers examined nearly two hundred couples, who wanted to add baby girl to their families.

All the participants were instructed to include green, leafy vegetables, fruits and rice in their daily diet, nine weeks prior, they trying to conceive in order to raise the levels of calcium and magnesium in bloodstream of the would-be-mothers. Additionally, the couples were provided with vital minerals in the shape of tablets.

All the participants underwent through regular blood test and they were instructed to note the time of peak fertility every month. The research team was amazed to see that among all participants who participate in test, eighty percent of pregnant women, who consumed vegetarian diet delivered baby girls.

It was found that among thirty-two couples who took test, twenty-six mothers gave birth to girl child and only six delivered baby boys. Following the accurate diet can help would-be-parents to choose sex of their unborn child, although the exact role played by other aspects likes timing of conception was not evaluated, explained study author Annet Noorlander, a biologist.

New Research- Girl Diet!

Mothers who eat a diet rich in fruit, vegetables and rice are more likely to have baby girls, according to a new study that could help parents choose the sex of their children.

The Dutch study asked 32 women who already had boys to try a special "little girl diet" high in calcium and magnesium.

This meant eating foods like goat’s cheese salad, vegetable stew and rice pudding. Foods like potatoes and bananas, which have high levels of potassium, that is believed to lead to boys, were restricted.

The result of the five-year project was that 26 women had girls and only six gave birth to boys.

The women were also asked to try and conceive at a certain time in the ovulation cycle.

But the researchers believe that the diet of the women was the strongest factor in achieving 80 per cent girls.

Old wives’ tales already advise women to eat certain foods such as spinach, nuts and broccoli in order to have girls

It is thought that levels of minerals in the blood affect the unfertilised egg, making it more receptive to female chromosomes.

Gender Consult, the Dutch consultantcy that led the research with Delft and Maastricht Universities, is now going to conduct the same experiment with women who have girls and want to have a little boy.

Annet Norlander, a biologist at the centre, said the results of the studies could help people to influence the sex of their child in future.

America's First Baby Of 2011- It's a Girl!

Cathy Narciso, 28, from Dededo, was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome, a common hormonal disorder among women of reproductive age.

A doctor told her it would have been difficult for her to have children. But Narciso, a staff nurse at Guam Memorial Hospital, hoped and prayed she would be a mom one day. She became a mother on New Year's Day. Eighteen seconds after midnight Narciso gave the final push making her son, Peter Gabriel Imson, the first baby to be born in America in 2011. Imson left the womb crying and opened his eyes immediately, said Dr. Thomas Shieh, the obstetrician who delivered the healthy baby boy.Imson weighs 6 pounds and 13 ounces and is 18.5 inches tall, Shieh said. Imson is also an early birthday present for his mother, who turns 29 on Jan. 8. "I wasn't expecting it," Narciso said of hospital officials telling her that Imson is the first baby born in America this year. "I didn't know what came with it."

Lots came with it. Since 2005, the "I Love Guam New Year Baby" project started by Archway Inc. has been showering the first baby born on Guam with gifts from local businesses valued at thousands of dollars. Imson got the same treatment yesterday at Guam Memorial Hospital. Around 2 p.m., about $7,000 worth of gifts were rolled into Imson's room. Savings bonds, diapers and a car safety seat were just a few of the items. Hank Rice, sales and marketing director at Archway Inc., said the previous year isn't over until the gifts are delivered to the firstborn for the new year.
"We are hoping this will be a way to promote Guam," Rice said. "This is the first baby born in the United States of America. No other place can claim that right. This is spotlighting Guam." Rice said despite the shortfalls in the economy, Guamanians still gave donations to make this happen for the newborn. "It's always positive," Rice said. Shieh said Narciso's story is one of hope and faith. "As a doctor, every baby is precious and I do my best to take care of the mother and the baby at the same time, and we all realize that medicine is not perfect and doctors really are just God's helpers," Shieh said. "So I agree with mom, it takes hope, faith and, yes, lots of prayers." Narciso said, as a first-time mother, she was appreciative of Shieh and the GMH staff, especially Staff Nurse II Joanne Camemo, at the Labor and Delivery ward. "I am really grateful. I guess I am really fortunate," Narciso said. "Not only having the babies but the extras. He came with a bundle. He's a lucky baby. I am a lucky mom, too."
