### Can 2 O+ parents have a+ child?

But it is technically possible for two O-type parents to have a child with A or B blood, and maybe even AB (although this is even more unlikely). In fact, a child can get almost any kind of blood type if you consider the rule-breaking exceptions.

### What’s the healthiest blood type?

Type O negative red blood cells are considered the safest to give to anyone in a life-threatening emergency or when there’s a limited supply of the exact matching blood type. That’s because type O negative blood cells don’t have antibodies to A, B or Rh antigens.

Which parent do you inherit your blood type from?

You inherit one blood gene from your mother and one from your father. The combination of genes determines your blood type. There are four possibilities: A, B, AB, and O. Here’s how it works: With that in mind, we turn to your question, Confused.

## How do you determine blood type from parents?

– AA = A blood type – AO = A blood type – BB = B blood type – BO = B blood type – OO = O blood type – AB = AB blood type

## How are blood types passed on to an offspring?

Two parents with blood type A will have a baby with either A or O

• Two parents with B blood type will have a baby with either B or O
• Two parents with blood type AB will have a baby with either A,B,or AB
• Two parents with the O blood type will have a baby with O
• Are all children of same parents the same blood type?

While a child could have the same blood type as one of his/her parents, it doesn’t always happen that way. For example, parents with AB and O blood types can either have children with blood type A or blood type B. These two types are definitely different than parents’ blood types!
