This post refers to the book titled: “How to choose the sex of your baby” authored by Dr Landrum Shettles, which until today is one of the most refefred books when it comes to baby gender selection. The methods mentioned in the book is still a highly debatable subject. However the medical background of his theories do make a great deal of biological sense. Dr Shettles bases his methods on the fact that X-chromosome carrying sperm – the girl sperm – are slower swimmers and larger in size as compared to their Y counterparts. There are some characteristics associated to the girl sperm especially the fact that they are better suited to the acidic environment of a woman’s body and are a lot more robust than the boy sperms.
Other steps such as the intercourse positions, temperature and diet are also mentioned in the book, with details on how utilizing the different techniques, better accuracy is establishes in choosing the sex of your baby. For example, if you are trying for a baby girl, you should use shallow etration position as this will give the boy sperm a longer and more strenuous trip while the the girl sperm will have no problem with this. For better accuracy, the Shettles Method also uses ovulation dates as a guide to decide on your intercourse days. The best way to be able to determine when ovulation is taking place is using an ovulation prediction kit which can be purchased at pharmacies.
Although the Shettles method seems to be reasonably sound, other medical experts so indicate that there is no way to be able to guarantee the actual gender selection of your baby. Nevertheless, in comparison to the high cost of surgical or artificial insemination in selecting baby gender charged by specialists these days, the Shettles method seems extremely popular with couples interested in baby gender selection.
Various other tips beside the Shettles Method are available in this recommended ebook.
To follow through on my previous posts on the value of acidity in a woman’s body and the diet to take to conceive a baby girl, below I have compiled a list of different food types that you can consider to help in your plan for a baby girl. According to the Shettles method for gender selection, a woman’s vagina is more acidic closer to its entrance and an acidic environment kills the boy sperm and therefore allowing the girl sperm have a better chance of reaching the female egg and conceiving a baby girl. Believers in this theory say your diet also should be high in calcium and magnesium (spinach, tofu, almonds, beans and broccoli) but low in salt and potassium (cut down salty foods and red meats) if you want to conceive a girl.
You are advised to seek medical advise from your doctor if you have any conditions in which acidic foods will create more problems for you such as acid re-flux, gastritis. etc.
Vegetables and Dairy Food : Tomato, Lentils, Butter, Cheese, Buttermilk, Yogurt
Drinks : Coffee & Tea, Soda & Soft drinks, Wine

Most parents have no inclination to either a baby boy or girl for their first child, however they may have preferences when planning for the second baby onwards. Therefore they try different methods to help increase the chances of conceiving a child.

The Shettles method is one of the most popular methods used for selection of their baby’s gender.

Hello again, Julie here!
Today’s post is on how acidity level in the woman’s body can affect the outcome on how to plan for a baby girl. I have shared some overall information on how food can help in your planning to conceive a baby girl.
Let’s do a recap: the boy sperm cannot survive for very long in your vaginal and reproductive tract if it is highly acidic while girl sperm does not have any problem with this condition. So, it stands to reason that if you want a baby girl, you would definitely want to get your acidity and PH levels as high as you can. The first way you can do this is through adjusting your diet to accommodate more acidic food items. To improve your chances to conceive a baby girl, you want to steer clear of the alkaline foods because they will lower your PH and this is not going to help in your objective of getting a baby girl. You should avoid foods that are low in pH value like most fruits and vegetables as well as most nuts, especially almonds.
Instead you should load up on foods like most meats, dairy, and select fruits and vegetables like corn and blueberries, which all have a higher pH values. You only need to do this until your reach your optimal level. The other way to make your body more acidic is through douching. You can use PH testing strips to see how and where you fall naturally. Just test as directed (you can get these at your local pharmacies) and then make the appropriate adjustments in your diet and / or by your douching regimen.
It is advised to combine both of the above methods in order to get faster results. Visit us more often here on How to plan for a baby girl for more tips soon.
Below are some samples of acidic foods for your review that are helpful when planning to conceive a baby girl:
Corn, Lentils, Olives, Blueberries, Canned or Glazed Fruits, Cranberries, Barley, Bran, Corn, Cornstarch
Have a good day ahead!
As you may have learnt by now, the food you consume plays an important part in determining the gender of your baby. How to plan for a baby girl shares tips on the types of food to add or remove from your diet during this period.
Why Foods Affect Your Conceiving A Girl:
Basically the foods you eat affect the acidity level pH in your vaginal area. Increasing the pH level will cause the boy sperms to be greatly compromised in the acidic environment while allowing the girl sperm a better chance of fertilizing the egg. Therefore you will need to eat a diet high in acidic foods and very low alkaline foods.
Some examples of acidic foods are: Examples of highly acidic foods are fruits such as plums, prunes, cranberries as well as meats, fish, and whole grains. If you find this difficult to maintain, just keep thinking about your daughter and know that it will be worth it.
Foods you should avoid: almost all vegetables except corn, orange juice, potatoes, spinach, and watermelon.
Also you should consume more calcium and magnesium foods while avoiding potassium in foods when you are trying to conceive a baby girl: You should load up your diet with foods that are high in calcium and magnesium while you avoid foods that are high in potassium ( such as bananas, etc.) Also avoid alcohol and caffeine irrespective of whether you are going for a boy or girl. So in the end, milk, cheese, yogurt beans, legumes, leafy green foods would be your choice foods when you are planning to conceive a baby girl.
Besides the food to eat, douching can immensely help in keeping the acidity levels up. If you feel uncomfortable doing it, do understand that t you’ll only be doing it for a short period of time and it makes the process happen much more quickly.
I hope the above helps you out on how to plan for a baby girl and I wish you the best always!
