  • go to The directions are there.

    And you don't pee on the cabbage. You mix you pee and the juice.

  • It's stupid is what it is. pee mixed w/ cabbage can not tell you the sex of your baby!

  • SoniaL is right - it is impossible to tell the sex of the baby by anything other than ultrasound or amnio. This is yet another old wives tale. Since the odds are 50-50 that any home "test" you administer will be correct, people take these things as being accurate. They're not, it's pure luck.

  • It didn't work for's 50/50 at best, and works based off the PH level of your urine, which is NOT effected by the sex of your baby.

    But to simply answer the question, you get a head of Red Cabbage, cut it into chunks, boil it until the water is a super dark purple, almost blue. In a separate cup mix equal parts urine, and the juice from the cabbage. If it turns purple, it's supposed to be a girl. Red/pink means boy.
