Adding/Creating an Infant

To unlock babies you need to complete the Two and a Half Sims Quest first. Once the quest is complete you need to place a cot in a house, you don’t need two sims who are married anymore but there needs to be 3 or less sims living there (4 sims in a house is the maximum) When you see the blue add sim circle above the cot you are ready!

Add a Baby will be the first option you see but once you have completed the A Bump-y Ride Quest your sims will be able to get pregnant so when you click on a crib you will see two other options:

  • Add a Baby– costs 3LP (will cost simoleons once you have completed the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest, the simoleon cost varies depending on how many other sims you have in your town) It takes 24 hours for the baby to arrive.
  • Pregnancy– costs 5LP and your sim will develop an expanding baby bump, after 6 days the baby will arrive.
  • Pregnancy Event– costs 2LP and your sim will develop an expanding baby bump while completing daily goals and other sims can complete support tasks, if you complete all the tasks and goals in the 9 day time limit your new baby will receive baby bonuses, if not your baby will still arrive after 9 days.

Read my Guide to Pregnancy for more information on the two pregnancy options

Once the baby arrives you can change their name, choose their gender, eye, skin and hair colour and outfit.

You cannot change the name, gender or skin colour again unless you use the ultimate makeover which costs 12LP


Needs

and how to fulfil them

An adult, teen or senior is needed to help keep your infant happy (except bladder as they will go in their diaper when they need to!)

  • Hunger- adult selects Give Food on infant /infant selects Be Fed on adult
  • Bladder- the infant will go in their diaper when they need to, this will decrease their hygiene need
  • Energy- infant selects Go to Sleep or Hibernate on themselves
  • Hygiene- adult selects Change Diaper on infant /infant selects Have Diaper Changed on adult
  • Social- adult selects Cuddle on infant /infant selects Be Cuddled on adult
  • Fun- adult selects Entertain on infant /infant selects Be Entertained on adult

Activities for Infants

Interactions

Crib Interactions:

The first picture above is the interactions you get when a baby clicks on an adult and the second picture is when an adult clicks on a baby

Cry for Sim/Pick Up Infant– The baby will be picked up by the adult so they can get out of the crib (this option will only appear once you have completed the Nanny Knows Best Quest)

Have Diaper Changed/Change Diaper- This improves the Hygiene need

Be Cuddled/Cuddle– This improves the Social need

Be Entertained/Entertain– This improves the Entertainment need

Be Fed/Give Food– This improves the Hunger need

There is nothing you can do for the Bladder need, you have to wait for the baby to go in their diaper then you will need to change the diaper

Holding Infant Interactions:

You will only get these interactions once you have completed the Nanny Knows Best Quest

The first picture above are the options you get when you click on the sim who is holding the infant, the pictures below are the options you get when the infant is on the floor Pick Up Infant/Cry for Sim allows that sim to pick the infant back up

Ultimate Makeover- not relevant, this allows you to change the name, gender or skin colour of the adult sim

Let Infant Crawl– the sim will put the infant on the ground and then you can then control where they crawl by clicking on the floor when the plumbob is over their head:

Change Diaper– This improves the Hygiene need

Give Food– This improves the Hunger need

Practice Walking– This is the cutest! This improves the Entertainment need

Once the sim is holding the baby you can click on objects around the house to get interactions:

  • Bed- Quick Bouncies and Bounce Marathon
  • Bath- Bathe Infant and Bath Time Fun
  • Sofa- Sit with Infant and Relax with Infant

They can also travel to other sims houses while holding the baby (they will only count as one sim unless they put the baby down)

Having trouble using the highchair? Make sure your sim can stand behind the highchair so they can put the infant in it, if they can’t blue footprints will appear:

Once your sim puts the infant down on the floor (let infant crawl option) the infant can click on objects around the house to get interactions:

Interactions if you are the baby and you click on the baby:

Ultimate Makeover– this allows you to change the name, gender or skin colour of the infant for 12LP

Have Birthday– This will turn the baby into a toddler (you have to bake a birthday cake first and have completed the quest for toddlers)

Go to Sleep– This improves the Energy need

Hibernate– This improves the Energy need again by sleeping for 24 hours


Putting a baby back in their crib
A sim needs to pick the baby up then click on the crib and select put infant in cot. The other option is calm to sleep:

Ageing an Infant?

If you have completed the Life Dreams and Legacies Quest when your infant reaches the end of that life stage they will age automatically to a toddler sim. Before this, you need to complete the A Quest for Toddlers and bake a birthday cake to be able to age your infant to a toddler sim.
