Do you want to have a baby boy? Have you ever wondered if there were certain things you can do to increase the chances of having a boy? Well, believe it or not, there are steps you can take to improve odds of having a baby boy. So if you want to learn how to have a baby boy - read on...

Timing Sex: Male sperm are faster than female sperm, yet female sperm live longer than male sperm. (Just like men are faster runners than women and women usually live longer than men - haha, just kidding!) Seriously though, it has been proven that if you have sex three or four days before ovulation, the female sperm will still be alive to greet the egg, but the male sperm will have died off. So if you want to have a boy - it is best to wait to have sex until the exact day of ovulation.

Diet: There was a recent study that showed that moms who ate breakfast cereal every day were more likely to have a baby boy. This study also showed that moms who ate a high calorie diet at the time of conception were also more likely to have a boy. While no study results can guarantee results, this may be something you want to consider if you are tying to have a baby boy.

Men Don't Drink or Smoke: Female sperm are hardier than male sperm and if the male drinks or smokes at the time of conception - he could be eliminating more male sperm than female sperm. So if you want to conceive a baby boy - have your man lay off the Coors and Marlboro Reds.


  • Whether you have a boy are girl, you should feel blessed and remember that some couples are unable to conceive all together.
