Want a baby boy? Eat cereal! Eating foods with potassium, including a hearty breakfast, boost the odds of having a baby boy, according to a recent British study. Lead researchers say male embryos don't survive in conditions with low sugar levels--a condition brought on by skipping breakfast.

And women who ate at least one bowl of breakfast cereal daily were 87 percent more likely to have boys than those who just one bowl a week. This is the first study to show a link between a woman's diet and the gender of her baby.

Infant born without soft spot: Five-month-old Olivia Grace Casteel was born at a Texas hospital is recovering from surgery to reconstruct her skull after she was born with a rare condition in which the soft spot is fused.

Doctors at Children's Hospital in Dallas cut strips from the sides of her skull to allow the brain room to grow outwards, and reconstructed the forehead and back of the head to the neck. The baby's condition is being monitored.More info: Brinkley, cereal, manners, Casteel
