The first time she met Alice, when she was only a few months old, an older Korean lady we knew remarked to us “Oh, your next baby will be a boy!”
When I asked her why she thought so, she explained to me that the shape of the bald patch, where Alice’s hair had been rubbed away from laying down a lot, indicated a son next. It was a long narrow patch across the back of Alice’s head. The lady kindly explained that a future girl would be predicted if the bald patch was round.
I don’t know if this is Korean thinking, if it is traditional, or if it is just this lady’s method, but she has predicted we’ll have a son next, so I guess we’ll have to wait and see if she is right.
Have you ever heard such a method? Have you heard of any other unusual ways to predict a baby’s gender?
