Is a baby a "it"?
Used to refer to that one previously mentioned. Used of a nonhuman entity; an animate being whose sex is unspecified, unknown, or irrelevant; a group of objects or individuals; an action; or an abstraction:
I just read such a horrible sentence from a book.
Have you decided to breast-feed your baby or feed it infant formula?
:!: :!: :!:
Maybe it is just a 1-month-old baby. Sex remains mysterious.
I suppose the author wanted to avoid using him or her. I don't find it that shocking, since it's not his or her baby :-)
Re: Is a baby a "it"?
A baby of undetermined gender is often called "it", but not usually around its mother. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
