Following is a response from Senior DHS Data Processing Specialist, Noureddine Abderrahim:

You need to count the number of boys and the number of girls for a given respondent using the variable B4 which is the sex of the child (more on the recode variables can be found in the DHS Recode Manual which can be downloaded from the website), then compare these two sums. The syntax will depend on the software you are using.
