How to Conceive a Girl?
Many say that it’s easy to conceive a girl than a boy. I think it genes include a big part of whether a girl is easier to conceive. But, there are lots of helpful tips nowadays that will help the couple achieve to make a baby girl.
The most important thing to take note when planning to conceive is to determine the time of ovulation. It is recommended to make love at 2 to 3 days before ovulation to increase chances of conceiving a girl. The reason could be that the X chromosome can live longer than the Y chromosome.
Breastfeeding: Weaning Abruptly Is Hard
Sometimes, as much as we moms want to breastfeed our baby forever, there will come a time that we need to give up breastfeeding our baby for whatever reason we have. Weaning gradually is ideal but if in case we cannot do that, then be prepared for what will happen in the next few weeks.
My daughter was already two years old when I decided to stop breastfeeding her. Before she reached two years old, I’ve already told her that she could only feed from me until she reaches two. Weaning her was a little bit gradual since I started to offer my breast once a day, and that is only during night time. At first, she cries so I instead told her that I will just carry her until she falls asleep. I was lucky since my daughter understands easily.
