Woman have two X chromosomes and males have one X and one Y chromosome. The X and the Y are called sex chromosomes. If you have a baby with XX chromosomes it's a girl but if it's a X and Y chromosome combination it's a boy.
XX chromosome babies are girls but, if you have a baby with XY chromosomes it's a boy.
Every human cell contains 46 chromosomes.
