Completing this quest unlocks new baby interactions, these can be found in my Guide to Babies

You also unlock the the Musical Expressions hobby for baby sims which requires a xylophone from the promotions r us store to complete. The time limit for the hobby begins as soon as you complete this quest. The option is 3 hours 10 minutes so I would definitely earn some LPs to try and complete in time

Prize: Infant Overalls

Price? Free

Where can I find them? In the wardrobe for baby sims

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

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 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. Hello I have a new born baby.. And I’m at level ten without the quest. The baby doesn’t look like the one in the picture. How do I get her to look like the one in the picture?

  2. I can’t play with food because while the dad was searching for food I put the infant in the cot and when he was finished I put the baby back in and now it doesn’t say play with food. Please help

    • A lot of people are having this problem, I don’t know if its a glitch or they are just clicking on the baby with an adult sim so it may be easier to have all the other sims in the house busy doing something so the controls are on the baby, then click on the baby and you should get the option to play with food

  3. Hi. Im struggling with the Nanny knows best quest on Sims Freeplay.. I got to the part where you put the toddler in the highchair & look in the fridge for soft food.. But then couldn’t get the toddler to play with with the food. I cant move foward with this quest.. What do i do?

  4. I ran out of time doing the musical expressions quest because of real life stuff. Is there any way to get the baby jumper/bouncer at any time in the future or is there only this one chance forever? If so, it’s pretty harsh when I’ve been a loyal player for a year now and regularly buy things 😦

  5. Hi xx I am on level 28 but cannot seem to find this quest! You said that you cannot complete the quest if you are already completing another discovery quest. What’s a discovery quest? Thanks xxx

  6. Hello!

    So while my Sim was searching for the soft food and I thought ‘poor baby, she can’t sit in the highchair for 8 hours!’ . So I had another sin to pick the baby up and let her sleep in the crib.

    When the Sim was done in searching for the soft food, the baby was already awake and in another Sim’s arms. So I had the Sim to put the baby into the highchair after the new quest (the one that asks Sim to put a food in front of the baby but then the baby play) appear. When I tapped on the baby, the option ‘Play with food’ did not appear! ⊙_⊙

    Could it because of my fault for making the baby go sleep while the Sim search for her soft food? Or just glitch? It’s been two days. Please help me to fix this. 😦

    Thank you for reading!

  8. I have the baby already. But i cannot find the nanny at the park. I already at level 38. I cannot find xylophone n other babies items at all in the toys r us even.

  9. I ran out of time to finish this quest but now I can’t start the dancing quest or build the sorcerous supplies store since they both require the nanny quest to be completed. Is there anyway to fix that?

  10. I was supposed to be at the last stage of the nanny knows best. I’d already done ask nanny Williams to help a friend and should have been going into hug her goodbye. Now it’s asking me to do ask to help a friend again and the nanny is nowhere to be found. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled and still nothing. What do I do?

  11. I don’t see the xylophone and I finished the nanny knows best quest idk what to do its not in the baby store…?help

  12. Does the nanny still follow everyone around after the quest is complete? And if so, how do you get rid of her? She’s creepy and annoying. Lol

  13. Hi, sorry this is late, but after the quest, do we still have high chairs or no? I really would love to have high chairs for the baby so it can eat with its parents.

  14. Hey, I was wondering , I dident notice this before , but I had a sunset mall , it said , to build it , I have to complete the nanny quest thingy , but my sister ( dosent have a baby yet ) dosent have to do the nanny quest. :(( I have everything I need to build the sunset mall , EXCPT ! The nanny quest , which takes FOREVER !!! Is there anyway I can get RID of this quest ?!😞😉if no , than that’s ok. Thnks !

  15. Where did you get that crib and once you finish this can your baby still crawl and stuff? But if you let the other sims to stuff get the baby to crawl to a couch and click it see what happens ^~^

  16. The option to put my baby on the floor to play with the xylophone is not appearing. I completed the Nanny Knows Best Quest. Do you know how to fix this?

  17. There is no high chair in the infant section. How do I get the high chair to appear? I’ve looked in the home store and the children’s store.

  18. Hello, I got to the step where you have to relax with an infant on a couch. My sims freeplay glitched out and once I picked up the infant and started walking to the couch, the infant stayed floating in the air. Then when i closed out of the game and restarted it, the baby was on the ground and I could make it crawl around. My adult sim was still stroking the air and the action was still continued, even though the baby wasn’t part of the action. Should I cancel this action out and redo it or will it still count? I don’t want to wait the 16 or so hours and find out it didn’t work.

  19. I started the “Follow Obsessively” part but now I can’t skip it or touch my baby or the adult I used at all. What do I do?

  20. Hi! I understand that the prize for this quest is access to overalls for the baby. Is there any benefit besides that? I’m about 1/2 way through it and I feel like the baby won’t be a baby long enough to spend all this time on a cute clothing option. Does the Nanny stay if the quest is incomplete? Are there other quests that will not be available to me if i don’t finish this one? Thanks for your insight AND your very helpful blog!

    • You also unlock a hobby for babies and babies can do more things instead of just stay in their crib all day.
      The nanny stays if you don’t finish the quest, and you won’t be able to complete other discovery quests until this one is complete.

  21. Hello. I have this one question. So im doing this quest right now and my sims is posting photos in simbook which takes 15 hours while the quest will be over in 7 hours and im freaking out right now. What should i do? Because i dont have enough LPs to do anything

  22. hi there, may I know ask how to start the puppy odyssey quest? it always say my sims is busy with another quests and tell me to come back when I finish them. I have finished 2 quests but still can’t start it. it has been 2-3 day and I am afraid this puppy quest might disappear if I don’t do it now.

  23. I’m on the puppy Oddessy quest and the action sit on the sofa with people is impossible to complete because my puppy has disappeared. How do I complete this quest in time with no puppy?

  24. I ran out of time on the “Nanny Knows Best” quest and when I try to click on another quest it tells me to complete the Nanny Knows Best Quest . Should I acknowledge EA ?

      • I have the same problem. I can’t add an extra baby to the couple who already have 1 baby (the sign doesn’t appear).
        I’ve tried marrying another couple and putting a crib in their house – the sign appears above the crib, but says ‘A married couple needs to live here to have a baby’.

      • There is definitely a married couple living in the house? If so, are you currently waiting for another baby to arrive? As you can only add one at a time
        If you aren’t sorry but I don’t know what else to suggest, you may want to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you

  25. hi there, may I know ask how to start the nanny knows best quest? it always says my sims is busy with another quests and tell me to come back when I finish them. I have finished 2 quests but still can’t start it.

  26. Hi I’m on the nanny knows best quest at the clear infants mess at the garbage can bit. I accidentally cleaned it up normally. As in didn’t select “clear infants mess” and now I’m stuck on it, the infant hasn’t knocked the garbage can over again so the option hasn’t become available!!

    Can anyone help?

  27. Please help me!

    I followed the baby obsessively but then it says clean up infants mess, but my baby didn’t mess up the garbage and I can’t do anything!! Please help me!

    • A few people have had this problem in this update, unfortunately I don’t know what the solution is right now and nothing I have suggested so far has worked so you will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you, sorry!

  28. Hi the baby hasn’t knocked over the trash can so I can’t clean it up and continue with the quest do you have any advice?

    • A few people have had this problem in this update, unfortunately I don’t know what the solution is right now and nothing I have suggested so far has worked so you will need to contact EA to see if they can fix this for you, sorry!

  29. Thank you SOOOO much for that trick on getting lp by cooking! I was so stressed that i wouldnt get the outfits because i only had 8 hours left but i had an activity that would take me 13 hours but because of that cooking thing i was able to finish the quest in time! thank you so much i love your blog!

  30. Hi love your webisite. Iv been a player for years and im on here 24/7. Not to sound nosey but what level are you on and how much sims do you have??

  31. Hi! For some reason they have me doing this quest, and the toddler quest at the same time, and I only have 1 baby. Do you think its possible to finish both on time? And which one do you think I should pick to finish?

  32. My infant won’t pee, the toilet icon is red. What do I do? I have heard that a infant can’t pee so you have to age it into a toddler to do that but is there a way to do it without turning the infant into a toddler?

  33. If for example I did the last action (say goodbye) 5h before the deadline but I won’t be able to be there until 6h later (time period ended) will it be counted that I finished the quest in time?

  34. Eh I mean for example my deadline is at 3 pm, and I did the last action at 5 am (so it will finish in time, before 3 pm right), but if I can only log on at say 4 pm, will it count? Like will I get the timed prize or no ?

    • I already answered this question for you.
      Yes you need to finish before the time limit is up, you cannot finish after the time limit of 3pm if you want the prize because it finishes at 3pm.
