The birth of a baby is a blessing to every parent. Then be it a boy or a girl. Just holding their newborn parents feels immense happiness. And today we are gonna discuss about how it is decided by our body that it will be a baby boy or baby girl?
What is Chromosome?
Our body consists of some structures through which the gender of the baby is decided and these structures are called Chromosomes. Chromosomes are thread-like structures and every Chromosome is made up of DNA. The 23rd pair of the human body, the sex chromosome,is different within males and females.
How is the gender of the baby determined?
We discussed chromosomes and these chromosomes only determine the gender of the baby. The sex chromosomes are of two types X and Y Chromosomes.
In the process of reproduction the female body always carries an X chromosome and a father sperm carries either an X or Y Chromosome.If a sperm carrying an X chromosome fertilizes the egg, the resulting combination (XX) will develop into a female baby. On the other hand, if a sperm carrying a Y chromosome fertilizes the egg, the combination (XY) will develop into a male baby.
Genes of a baby
Genes of a baby are segments of DNA that carry the instructions for building and functioning of an organism.
Genes are inherited from both parents – Like eye colour can be of mother and nose can be of father. Height is one of the most common genetic factors that are inherited by a baby from the parents.
For a good development in a baby not only Genes but many other factors also play a very important role like Environmental factors, including nutrition, exposure to toxins, and overall health care, can also influence the expression of genes and impact a baby’s growth and development.
