Milk is a hot topic when it comes to gender selection! There's a lot of debate about a simple drink. Does it make it more likely you'll get a girl or a boy?
In favor of a boy
The protein and fat in milk, especially in whole milk, probably increases the chances of getting a boy more than a girl. Studies have proven that getting more fat, more protein, and more nutrition over all increases the chances of getting a boy. In addition, eating more calories increases your chances of getting a boy. Milk products, and again especially whole milk products, give you a pretty good amount of calories with each glass.
Unprocessed milk, or raw milk, most likely increases the chance of boys because it contains more vitamins, more nutrients, and just more of everything than store-bought milk.
The reason some people say that milk might increase your chances of getting a girl, on the other hand, is because it contains minerals thought to boost the chances of getting pregnant with a girl.
Calcium and magnesium are two minerals found in milk and all dairy products. Some studies have shown that these nutrients can increase your chances of getting a girl.
Milk is rich in one boy mineral, which is sodium or salt. Sodium heavy diets are definitely correlated with having more males.
Another consideration with milk is it's back on body pH. It's most likely that unprocessed milk causes the body to become more alkaline. Processed milk products, however, may cause the body to become more acid. This would favor girl conceptions. The alkaline effects would favor boy conceptions.
Recommendations for Milk
If you are trying to conceive a boy, a great plan is to consume only high-fat dairy products. Have them moderation, but don't be scared of them. You will get a lot of vitamins, fat, protein, an good level of sodium -- all things that you want.
If you would like to conceive a girl, only use low-fat dairy products. This will give you the calcium and magnesium but not add in extra fat which would end up increasing your chances of a boy. Some recommend yogurt as being good because it may be acidifying.
If you find that you are having trouble conceiving, go ahead and have full fat dairy products. They are proven to increase fertility for women having trouble getting pregnant. You will still be getting the calcium and magnesium you want for a girl. You can use many other techniques to boost your chances for a girl and still successfully get pregnant.
