QUEST IS COMPLETE! 

All new interactions with Infants can be found in my Guide to Babies

The Musical Expressions hobby can be found here- it is a timed hobby (7 days) which starts as soon as you complete this quest and requires a baby sim to complete, the option is 3 hours 10 minutes so I would definitely earn some LPs to try and complete in time

Prize: Infant Overalls

Is it worth it?: Yes, they are cute and free!

Where: Wardrobe

Thanks for reading!

Please note this quest was correct at time of writing, it may change.


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS QUEST

please read before asking

How do I start this discovery quest?
Find the nanny in the park to start this quest

Can I do discovery quests at the same time as a main quest?
Yes you can

I am doing the quest for toddlers and this one at the same time, is that going to cause a problem?
No it won’t as you don’t need to age a baby in the toddler quest

Why can’t I do this discovery quest yet?
You cannot do more than one discovery quest at the same time, if you are currently on another one (the list can be found here) you will not be able to do this one until that one is completed

Do I have to do this quest?
If you don’t start the quest you don’t have to do it at all but if you have already started it you need to complete it before you can move on to the next quest

I haven’t started this quest yet, will it still be available when I want to do it?
Yes it will be, you can choose to start it whenever you like

Do I need a baby for this quest?
Yes you do

I accidentally cleaned up the trash instead of cleaning the infants mess, how do I fix this?
Knock the trashcan over again and select the clean infants mess option

I can’t find any highchairs in buy mode, why?
You need to reach the goal to buy one before you unlock them

I can’t place my infant in a highchair, why?
The back of the highchair needs to be away from a wall or free from objects in the way so they can place the baby in the highchair from behind

What do you mean when you say a goal can be started early?
Any goal that you can normally do can be started early because you will have access to it and any goal that you can’t normally do you will have to wait until you get the goal to be able to complete it
The tip with this method is to put the sim doing that action early in a different house that you cannot go to until you get that goal or it will not work

I can’t get my baby to play with food, why?
The plumbob needs to be over that babies head and you need to click on the baby

Does the nanny stay once the quest is over?
No, she will leave

Why can’t I add a baby?
A crib needs to be placed in the house of a married couple, only married couples can have babies

How many babies can a couple have?
They can have 2 children as only 4 sims can live in a house at one time

How do babies go to the toilet?
They will go in their diaper when they are ready, then you can change their diaper to increase their hygiene

What do I get if I complete this quest in the time limit?
Overalls for your baby sims

What happens if I don’t complete in the time limit, can I still finish this quest?
Yes you have to finish it to unlock the musical expressions hobby before you can move onto the next quest

I didn’t complete in the time limit, can I restart the quest?
No, you cannot redo quests

Can I still get the prize if I don’t complete in the time limit?
No, the only way to get the limited time prizes is by completing the quest in the time limit

I don’t like this quest! Can I just skip it?
No, you have to complete this quest before you can move onto the next one now that you have started it, if you don’t start it you don’t have to do it

Some times are slightly different on my game, why is this?
Times may vary depending on the star rating of the item you are using, as the higher star rating an item has the quicker you will complete a goal

Some times are really off/ different goals show for me, why is this?

This will be because the quest has been updated recently, I try my best to keep these posts up to date but it is difficult as I cannot redo every quest each time the game is updated. If you notice any changes please let me know so I can update the post

This quest unlocks the musical expressions hobby, does the time limit start straight away once I have completed this quest?
Yes, the time limit for the hobby starts straight away once this quest is complete, you can click no when the hobby pop up appears but this does not stop the timer going down

Blue footprints appear when my baby tries to use the xylophone, why?
Blue footprints appear when your sim cannot access an item you want them to use, you need to either rotate the item or move an item that has been placed in front of it so they can use it

  1. I tried doing the “play with food” option in advance, but when I go back to the game to finish the previous action (Search for soft food), the baby is no longer doing anything and.. The high chair is now inverted, facing a wall. My baby is stuck..

  2. I accidentally cleaned up the trash instead of clean up after infant. Is there a way I can try again?

  3. Hey!! I love your site and refer to it ALL the time when I need help on Sims. I was just wondering if you know how to get the baby to knock over the garbage can? I think the game glitches and now I can’t clean up the mess. Any ideas?

  4. When I finish the last task the time limit is going to be over by a minute or so, will I still need to speed up the task even if it is only a minute? Is there any way that I don’t have to use my LP’s?
    Thanks!😘

    • Sorry but the only way to complete in the time limit will be to speed up with LPs, even if it is over by a minute you will still miss out on the prize without speeding up an action

  5. I really don’t know if other people are having this problem of just getting it done in seven days; but to post on sims book took me 16 hrs not 13hrs. Relaxing with an infant took me 18 hrs not 15.
    Soooo this was no help and I got no xylophone

    • It says in the post ‘some times may vary depending on the star rating an item has.’ The higher the star rating of an item the shorter time it takes you to complete it, I always write those times as that is the time on the items I used. If you didn’t complete it you may want to get items with higher star ratings so you will be able to on the next quest
      By the way you unlock the xylophone when you complete the quest whether you complete in the time limit or not, again it says this in the post.

  6. I’ve not long downloaded this game and I know the nanny quest came out last year, so will I still be able to do the quest? By the way, your blogs are very helpful. I’ve read a few of them.

  7. Your blogs are really helpful thanks I have 2 questions:
    1: In the nanny knows best,do you get some prizes if you don’t complete it in time?
    2: you should do a blog on bad optional quests that aren’t worth it in one blog
    Thanks x

  8. Ugh…I’m stuck without a nanny!
    One sim was at work. I played the original sims & you could lose your baby to child services if “neglected,” so I didn’t want to send the sim home with the baby to the park. The next thing I knew, the dancers showed up in the park. I tried to interact with the nanny, but she needs “undivided attention” & said to finish the dancing quest first. Now there’s a real estate agent and a puppy in the park and I’m still working with the dancers because every single one of their activities takes MULTIPLE HOURS to complete! A 10 hour chat? 19 hours of hibernation? Really??
    What am I supposed to do with the baby? The diaper icon is almost empty and there’s nothing I can do to help without the nanny. I can’t stand the idea of using points to speed through the dancing quests.
    Any advice?

    • Firstly the nanny is only there while you complete the quest, once the quest is over she will be gone again
      Secondly you cannot complete the nanny knows best quest while you are on another discovery quest (the dancing one) once that has finished you will be able to start the nanny knows best quest (you do not have to complete those quests in the order they appear at the park)
      Thirdly, a baby will not be taken away if you neglected it on this game so you don’t need a nanny, just have a sim interact with it when they are free.

  9. Is there a way to recreate the follow obsessively and then clean up infants mess part of the mission or can I restart the entire mission? I cleaned up the garbage can instead of selecting the mission option and now I’m not sure how to follow obsessively again! I’ve tried the steps above but may have to restart the mission if it’s a one time only thing…

  11. So I started the “search for soft food” and “play with food” like 2 minutes apart and then went to sleep, when I woke up, it said I only completed the “search for soft food” and it won’t let me search again so I can have my baby play with it. so I’m completely stuck here..

  12. How do you knock the trash can over again ; the option does not come up

  13. Hey i just started playing the sims will i be able to do this quest? P.s would anyone please add me as their neighbors. I don’t have any,
    Thank you in advance 😊❤️

  14. How can I add time for the quest because I really need more time

  15. Even if I’m not up to the part to buy a high hair yet but befor needing to get one I would like to k ow if we it will be available in the children’s store if we didn’t pass the quest to actually get a child? I’m sorry that I forgot the quest.

  16. Is there any way I can complete in the time limit?

  17. What do I do if my baby didn’t “update” yet. Like it’s still the same baby form as the older versions?

  18. Hi! A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job on the whole blog by the way! I just started playing Sims Freeplay a few days ago and have reached level 15 following your advice on getting more LPs, and with an extra 100k simoleons on hand! Thanks so much!

    On starting the “Play with food” early, does it mean I start the baby on that activity first, BEFORE I start an adult sim on “Search for soft food in the fridge”, and then come back on the game before the adult finishes?

    And, I just have to make sure that there is nothing around the highchair, right? To avoid the glitches previous posters have encountered?

    Thanks!

    • Thanks and you’re welcome!

      You could do but you would need to make sure that the baby one doesn’t end before the adult, if that is going to happen put the baby on after, that way you know you have an hour to get on the game and complete the fridge goal before the baby will be ready

      Yes that is correct

    • Excellent advice! That timing would be perfect indeed! Thanks! I am currently doing “Clean infant mess”. I will keep that in mind BEFORE I reach the “Play with food/Search for soft food” goal. Cheers, and more love and power to you! Bookmarked your blog!

  19. Can this quest be completed in five days? Just seems impossible

  20. I did the quest but not in the time limit and I didn’t get the overalls even tho I completed the quest what should I do?

  21. I clicked on the Nanny as soon as the baby was born, but I did not meet her. Now I can not find a way to meet the nanny.

  22. I’ve only just started the nanny knows best quest and the limited onsie for babies has started but u have to have completed the nanny knows best to be able to do it will it come up again? Thanks kim

  23. I started the Nanny Knows Best quest then turned my baby into a toddler. Do I have to add another baby to finish the quest?

  24. I have a question can I start rocking the infant to sleep early, like while sim I still cleaning garbage up?

  25. Thank you SO MUCH! I thought I was stuck b/c I accidentally chose the wrong option for cleaning up the trash! Just a note, it didn’t work for me on the same trash can, but I was able to go to a neighbor’s house & knock over the trash can there. Even though there was no baby in that house, it gave me the “Clean infant’s mess” option again. 🙂

  26. My baby is showing the toilet in the red. How do I fix that. Would hate to injur may baby.

  27. I turned the baby into a toddler before the nanny task was finished! Now it wants the baby to cry for a sim but I only have the toddler. I’m seriously stuck. Will it help to get another baby? Or would that not count?

  28. Do you have to have the home store to get a high chair

  29. I skip Quest “Nanny Knows Best” How do i play this quest.

  30. Uhmm, @weightlessmagic , have you ever heard about the “Baby Onesie” event? It appeared as a quest for me and the only requirement is to complete the Nanny Knows Best quest and I think you will then get the prize after.

  31. What will happen if I age my only infant to a toddler during the quest? Will there be a problem like they will prevent me from doing it or something?
