  Trying since long: How to have a fair complexioned baby???

My husband is of a wheatish complexion and I am pretty fair. I was wondering if there was anything we could do or eat to have a fair complexioned baby. Someone please tell me. Thanks.

Maybe for your 2nd child you can copulate with a European, and hope your hubby doesn' t demand a paternity test

Hi kiran
I am regular reader and also trying . i dont find anything wrong in your thought . Actually its genetic so you dont have any choice but to accept the decision of your and husbands gene . At the most human being can have 4 babies . There could be three cases 1) couple fair+dark
Possibility of having fair baby is 1:2:1
2) Couple both fair
Possility 3:1
3) couple both dark
Possibily again 3:1
So this means for the first case chance of havinhg very fair baby is 25% , medium complexion 50% and very dark 25% .For 2nd and third case chance of having very fair baby is 75% , and very dark 25% , no chance of having medium complexioned baby .So as your husband is dark and you are fair , you have 25% chance of having very fair baby . So pray to GOD along with your other prayers of having healthy ( mentally and physically)baby. You should be more concerned about the well being of the baby ,instead thing the complextion .
Most of the couple know that there is no choice so we have to leave it to God. One traditional thing from my grand ma -- If it is of your help , take tender coconut water in empty stomach every day morning from 2nd moth till 7th then stop . I heard about Saffron also did not try .
All the best.

I totally agree with VANI. How can one think of ridiculous thoughts. A child is a gift that should have no conditions. We have been trying to get preg for 4 years now and would do anything to have a baby. What do you plan to do if the baby is not what you expect???

hi ! i am so amazed to read questions like how to get a fair baby. does it matter. would u love your baby less if it's born with a darker skin than what u've wanted. does it matter at all ? i mean see around there r childless couples trying and trying for a baby and all u guys care for is a fair baby. it's all in your mind ! really ! life doesn't treat fair people well. it's the same for all. make the best of what life has to offer u. remember u get what u deserve ! and try and be happy with it ! all the best to u ! be rich in your thoughts ! that is what your child will inherit from u ! good luck !

Hi Kiran,
Don't worry about colour of the child. You can make him good person, by teaching him fair things.I have been hoping to get pregnant since 6 years, so each child is a god's gift.just hope that it should be healthy..good luck...

hi,
well the question seems to be a little irritating for many but it is okay that one can think that she should have a fair child.take 3-4 saffron strands and boil it in milk for 5 minutes.add little sugar,take it when it is lukewarm. do this daily.this is a traditional method ......you can try it.
by the way donot look for colour, colour alone cant make a better person

This fairness bias has been going on too long in our country and among our people. why is it that fair children are more preferred than brown-complexioned children? are they naturally smarter? more sucessful? more chance of being wealthier? if you think about it, the answer is NO. so why is it such a big deal to want to be fair? as for wanting a fair child--- if your child happens to be brown skinned will you love him/her less than if she/he was lighter skinned? i certainly hope not..........so Pushpa, you want a fair child, but your almonds, milk, and fairness creams could all be replaced by praying to Bhagwan to eradicate this hateful bias and put equality on this earth.

You may want to just not worry about whether or not your child will come out fair.

Skin color, shades and tones of skin are genetic, heredity plays the majority of the part in this matter. Look at some of your husband's relatives like his brothers, sister, parents and grandparents, then, look at yours.

Since your husband is wheatish, and if his parents are similar or lighter and so are his grandparents...along with your side, you will have a fair child.

If you have one parent that is blessed with a browner skin tone, and if the other is just opposite, the children generally come out in between.

You will find there is no way to intervene in the complexion. Almonds are wonderful, but, you will have to have some genetics of fairness to really have a good chance of having a fair child.

Even from 4 generations back, it carries into your children.

I know; it's hard to deal with society and it's preference of skin fairness.

But, as we know, Indians are mostly \";brown skinned\"; as compared to \";whiter\"; people. Let's just be happy to have a baby that is growing healthy inside of you and pray that God will give this baby the best chances in life to be an intellegent, productive human.

You will be blessed with the perfect baby.

God Bless

Try any egg donor agency
You can try to advertise on a local newspaper for a donor. we have done that before.

or you can ask srushti to do that on your behalf if you are not in chennai.
