Ok, I've been living under a rock for years. I have never ever, not once, had a pregnant sim, a baby, or children in any game version I've ever played! LOL, It just never interested me that much, I was more into the owning a business or careers to worry about it.

So, I decided that this weekend I'd update my game to get toddlers and buy the Parenthood pack and actually play instead of creating.

But I have questions for all your experts .....

How does this work? Do I need to get my sim pregnant have the baby and it will age up to toddler?

Or do I just create a toddler in CAS as part of the family?

And, if it ages up from baby, will the toddler look like a combination of mom & dad both?

Thanks for any help!

You can either "get" your sim lady pregnant, and she will carry the baby for three days until she goes into labour.
Then you can either have the baby at home (by clicking on the crib) or she can go to the hospital (if you have Get To Work).
The the baby stage is for about three days as well where after the baby grows into a toddler. The toddler stage is for 7 days I think, and then you have a child.

If you don't want her to get pregnant, you can adopt via the computer.

The genetics in the sims 4 is not that good. All babies look alike, and unless you change a little to the face and nose so do all the toddlers. But by tweaking in CAs (with the cheats activates and you type in cas.fulleditmode on). Then you can change the features a little.

Even with the drawback of the last part, it is really fun to have a toddler. I have not played at all since I got the Parenthood one installed, but also plan to do that this weekend.

I hope this helped.

Thanks perfect! TYSM! I think I'll do the whole pregnant thing since I've never experienced it and have her go to the hospital.

I watched a Youtube review of toddlers yesterday and they are soooo cute, I wanted to try it.

Then when I was searching for how to make over all my townies so my girl could fall in love with an attractive person, I came across a site that had absolutely gorgeous sims and she posted lots of pics (with poses, of course) of her couples and one had a little toddler that looked like dad, it was adorable!

So that just enhanced my need to want to try it even more. So today I've been on a D/L spree of toddler things in anticipation! LOL

The toddlers are super cute, I just wish they'd update the babies too so they're not basically inanimate objects.

Yes, that would be great to be able to carry the baby around as well.
No good mother will leave their baby in a crib for that long!!!

LOL Koala! That made me giggle picturing a very loud, unhappy, squawking baby in RL that was so loud it was disturbing the neighbors!

Not me, Avalanche. I still have yet to play with toddlers except for a very a brief test of them. But, maybe Anita or Nikki does, I thinks they may both play with them

I haven't done yet but I think you it is an option for a social event (just like a wedding, dinner party, etc). You have to have a toddler and one parent at the party (I think) and then you invite all of their toddler friends. I think you have it either at your home or a park.

I was wondering the same thing. I was putting a 'hood together with lots of toddlers in it so I can have that party. I am really looking forward to it.
I thought it would be something like that.....might need Get Together for it to work though....
Will have a look and report unless someone else beet me to it...LOL

I solved the problem by creating a second family with toddlers, let them meet my main family and held the party afterwards. Sorry to say, but it wasn't worth the trouble.

This was simply my impression Anita. Please see for yourself. It didn't meet my expectations, but maybe others.

I have created a few families with children of different ages to see how a 'hood will interact without having houses filled with either old people or ghosts.
Still have a few to go and then I will try out the interactions with the toddlers.
I will keep an open mind.....

I do not have Parenthood, so cannot say how the interactions are with that pack. Let me say though, in order to have your toddler max out skills, it takes longer than 7 days. I usually will turn aging off once the baby has grown to toddler, so that I can spend the time necessary for the toddler to max out skills. Then when I am ready for the toddler to age up, I bake a cake, add candles, while you have the toddler selected as the active sim, click on the cake and choose Make a Wish or age up. Of course, if you want to throw a party, make those arrangements before selecting make a wish or age up.

In addition, since the baby does nothing but eat, sleep and cry, usually one it has reached friendship status with both parents, I usually go ahead and age it up to a toddler. Just sayin', my patience doesn't extend to useless time changing diapers and losing sleep, LOL.

Debbie, I do the same with the babies. They are not pretty, the one looks like the other, you can not change anything on them and no creative actions are available. I wait a day and age them up or as soon as the buff they have received is about to run out.
You can make the life span longer in your game settings. Then, I think the toddlers have 10 days. I like to use that one, since the child phase is also a little longer, and you can have them achieve better grades and allow them time to play and have fun as well.
The teens can have a part time job, without having their grades go down the drain.....

I have started a new gamesave where I create (still busy with that) new families for all the houses I want in the hood. I am tired of old people about to die and leaving their ghosts behind. I want a live 'hood filled with young people.
And then I will pick and choose which family to play, depending on what happened in the 'hood. I am actually kind of looking forward to start with that.
