Sex of Infant Differences in Mother-Infant Interaction: A Reinterpretation of Past Findings.
Grant, Valerie J.
Developmental Review, v14 n1 p1-26 Mar 1994
Describes the nature and consistency differences in mother-infant interaction affected by sex of infant, and reviews past interpretations. Offers an alternative interpretation, drawing on evidence from animal studies, studies of pregnant women, and work by epidemiologists and ethologists on sex ratio data that suggests mothers of male infants may be more dominant in personality than mothers of female infants.
