Sims 4 Baby Guide

In this guide we will examine pregnancy, babies and also some cheats about them. Lets start.

ADOPTING

You have two options to add a baby to your family. You can either have your own baby or adopt one. To adopt a baby, you have to spend $ 1000. You will have an option to adopt when you click on a computer. After you pay $ 1000, you will get a list of babies and children with pictures and names. You can choose the one you want, a baby or child. About an hour later, you will get a notification about they brought your new member of your house. After you get your baby, you can change his/her name.

PREGNANCY

If you dont want to adopt and have your own baby, lets see what you need to do 🙂

First of all what you need of course are a male and female sim. You will have to go though some interactions and build a relationship before having the option ” try for baby ”. If your couple gets married and have maxed romance bars, it will probably one of the first options when you click on your partner. After trying for a baby, female sim can buy a pregnancy test by clicking on a toilet for $ 15. You will get the result as soon as you use the test. If you get pregnant and dont do the test, a notification will show up the next day as ”eating for two ” to inform you.
Mostly, pregnant sims give birth to a single baby. But you can use ” fertile ” ( It is available for 3.000 satisfaction points at rewards store ) to reduce the chance of having twins or triplets.
Pregnancy in sims 4, lasts for 3 sims days. You will have the same pregnancy signs such as nausea and vomitting which we also had in sims 2 and sims 3. But in sims 4 , there are some new additional signs for pregnancy. Pregnant sims will tend to behave capriciously or have backaches etc… which adds more fun to the period of pregnancy. Male sims can give massage to pregnant sims these days to comfort them a bit 🙂
Labor will start before 3 hours from birth. Your pregnant sim will be on + 40 uncomfortable moodlet during this period. If you want you can use the option ” deliver baby at hospital ” and skip this labor time. Otherwise you can do all the actions in this time with your pregnant sim , eat, drink etc..

GENDER

There are some actions which effects the gender of the baby. Eating carrots and listenning to alternative music can raise the chance to have a baby boy. And if you want to have a baby girl, you can eat strawberries and listen to pop music to reduce the chance.

MALE PREGNANCY

Male sims can also be pregnant by alien abduction in sims 4. But for this you need the ” Get to Work ” expansion pack. To get abducted by an alien, you can join the scientist career and use satellite to contact aliens. This will reduce the chance for alien visit and so, abduct your sim.

BABYCARE

We cant control babies until they become children, so they need parents to take care of them. You need to feed ( bottle or breast ), change dirty diapers, give attention to them. Only mothers can breast feed babies, others can only feed them by bottle.
There are no notifications about baby needs, so you need to be careful with signs and his / her cry. For example , green fog on the baby shows that it is time to change the diaper. If baby cries , you may have to feed or show some attention like playing with them. When all the needs are provided, baby will go into sleep authomatically.

Parents can go outside or go to work leaving the baby at home by the ” day care ” option.
The worst part is unlike sims 2 and sims 3, we dont have toddlers in sims 4. Babies directly jump into the child stage. You dont have to wait for the normal age time. At the time you want, you can click on the bassinet and choose ” age up ” option. Otherwise, it will take 3 sim days for a baby to age up.

CHEATS

There are also some pregnancy cheats if you prefer to play with them.

sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester1 – your sim will look like as she is pregnant at 1st Trimester.
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester2 – your sim will look like as she is pregnant at 2nd Trimester.
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_Trimester3 – your sim will look like as she is pregnant at 3rd Trimester.
sims.add_buff Buff_Pregnancy_InLabor – Your sim will give fake birth but there wont be any babies.
pregnancy.force_offspring_count (simID) (count) – you can write the number of babies you want instead of ” count ”. But you need to be careful with the household limit.
