    confusing sentences

    I've heard these two sentence, but I don't know if they are generally acceptable:
    You should drink fewer sweet drinks.
    It doesn't matter for me whether the new born is a boy or a girl.
    Best regards.

    Re: confusing sentences

    #1 is fine.

    #2 should be 'It doesn't matter to me whether the baby is a boy or a girl'.

    It's possible to use newborn (one word) as a noun, but it's not colloquial in everyday conversation.

    Please note that a better title would have been You should drink fewer sweet drinks.
