Have a Baby by Adopting

Adopting a Baby, Toddler, or Child
In The Sims 4, babies can be produced using Try For Baby or using the computer to adopt. (Choose Household, then Adopt). Adoption costs $1,000 and the player gets to choose between a baby, toddler, and a child. You also get to pick the one you wish to adopt. The computer will show pictures and names of the available babies, toddlers, and children. Click on the one you want. My Sim chose a baby named Savannah. She immediately walked out of the house and disappeared at the street. About an hour later, you'll get a notice that your Sim is bringing home a new family member. You'll also be given the option to change the name of the baby you pick. Your Sim returns with some confetti and the baby is magically in the bassinet. Adopting a toddler or child works the same way.

Have a Baby by Getting Pregnant

Other Guides: Toddlers Guide  |  Children Guide

To have a baby naturally, a Sim who is able to be pregnant (male or female via CAS options) will have to find a suitable partner/spouse and go through all of the necessary friendly and romantic interactions in order to successfully Try For Baby. My Sim had the Romantic trait and her Aspiration was Soul Mate, which meant that she eagerly sought the Sim who would be the father to her baby. I found that Try For Baby came up sooner than in Sims 3, so less time was needed for the couple to interact romantically. Getting flirty can help boost the success of romance interactions.

The parents were married and had maxed their friendship and romantic bars, and Try for Baby often came up as a first option without having to do any romancing before hand. Sims can also have a male appearance and have the ability to become pregnant, or be female in appearance and able to make others pregnant - see transgender section below for how to do this.

Video guide for how to Woohoo in The Sims 4 to have a baby

There are no longer pregnancy chimes at the time your Sims Try for Baby. Instead, the mother can do a pregnancy test by clicking on the toilet afterward. The cost is $15 and results are immediate. Either it will say she's eating for two or to try again. She will immediately start to show a little after getting a positive pregnancy test. Otherwise, if you do not do a pregnancy test, the game will inform you after a day that the mother is pregnant. Luckily, the mother will wear her same clothes throughout the pregnancy. There's no spinning into ugly maternity clothes!

CAS Options - Make Sim Transgender
During Create-a-Sim, you can select '...' beneath the gender settings to make your Sim however you desire. Sims can have masculine voice and feminine appearance, and you may also select whether that Sim is capable of becoming pregnant regardless of gender. You must pick one or the other - Sims who can become pregnant can't get others pregnant. You may also choose neither, indicating that Sim can woohoo without any baby being born.

Male Pregnancy (via Alien Abduction)
If you have a male Sim in the household who is from Young Adult to Elder in age and have installed the Get to Work Expansion, Alien Abduction can result in your Sim getting pregnant. You can make this happen by joining the Scientist Career, and working your way up until you can build the satellite. You can use the satellite on your home lot to contact aliens. This makes them more likely to visit, and thus abduct your Sim. Conversely, you can use the satellite to stop alien abductions to prevent your male from getting pregnant. For a full tutorial to abductions, see How to Get Abducted for Alien Babies.

Having Boys or Girls

Influence the Baby's Gender: A patch made it so that we can influence the gender of babies, so we can make the chance large that a baby girl or boy is born:

  • To be more likely to have a baby boy: Eat carrots and listen to alternative music on the radio.
  • To be more likely to have a baby girl: Eat strawberries and listen to pop music on the radio.

Doing both of these things during your pregnancy will increase your odds of having a boy or girl.

Having Twins and Triplets: Multiple Births

Though it is possible to influence the game to give you Twins or Triplets, the pregnancy will typically produce a single baby. Twins and triplets can happen naturally, but to increase the chances of twins or triplets, use the Fertile Reward. It's available from the Rewards Store for the price of 3,000 Satisfaction points. You can also cheat to have twins or triplets, see below. If those cheats are too complex, you can use the Sims.give_satisfaction_points X cheat to give yourself enough to afford fertile

Another means of boosting the odds of twins and triplets is to use the Wellness skill on someone other than the Sim who is going to get pregnant, or visit a massage parlor. With the Spa Day Game Pack, Sims can get a Fertility Massage at the Spa or from a Sim who is practiced in the Wellness skill. You must own a massage table to get one at home, but this is reported to increase the rate of twins and triplets as well.

These are at present the only ways known to boost multiple birth rates without cheating.

During the Pregnancy





A pregnancy lasts approximately three Sim days, no matter which lifespan setting the player is using. The mother will have morning sickness and make trips to the bathroom to vomit. It's pretty gross, so beware before you zoom in for a close up! The toilet will need to be cleaned afterward. During her pregnancy, the mother will have backaches that may or may not be helped by a massage from her partner. I didn't notice my Sim getting any whims for a massage. The mother will be able to Share Big News and Invite to Feel Baby. Hover over her pregnancy moodlet to see how far the pregnancy has progressed: first, second, or third trimester. By the third trimester, the mother is HUGE! She's also quite uncomfortable and ready for the baby to come.

Preparing the Nursery
In Sims 4, the only baby item is the bassinet. You may purchase one prior to the birth, or one will be provided by Social Services when the baby is born if you don't own one. The bassinet doesn't take up much space and can easily be kept in the mother's bedroom if you don't want to bother with making a separate nursery. Consider building up a bedroom for your baby before it ages up to Toddler. You'll need a high chair, toddler bed, and potty chair.

Giving Birth to a Baby

When the time arrives, the mother will go into labor. It will last about three hours and the mother can do anything she wants during this time. She can eat, have conversations, go to the bathroom, even sleep. She'll have a +40 Uncomfortable moodlet during this time, however, which is too large to really overcome by normal means. If you like, you can avoid long labor by simply clicking the option to deliver at hospital from the Bassinet. The father in my game would sometimes have pre-parental panic and run through the house. He had the Hates Children trait, so that was a possible cause, but other fathers may experience this as well. Nobody else in the house (teens and children) had any reaction.

When it's Go Time, the mother will go to the bassinet for the actual birth, or you'll be taken to the hospital for surgery with the Get to Work Expansion (if you chose the hospital route). This is when we get to see her faces and listen to her groan. It doesn't last long and before you know it, you've got a brand new baby. The little darling will be dressed in a one-piece jumper: green for boys and yellow for girls. No traits are chosen at the time of birth, so it doesn't matter if the mother has a smooth pregnancy. The first trait is chosen at Toddler and a childhood Aspiration is chosen at the Child stage.

Caring for the Baby

Baby's Needs
The baby cannot be the active Sim and the player cannot see his/her needs. You have to judge the situation from visual and audio clues. but they have a hidden hunger, fun and hygiene need that must be met. The baby will sleep automatically when well cared for. You can develop the relationship by using the limited socials that are available, while also satisfying the baby's needs for entertainment and socialization. A green cloud means a dirty diaper and crying means the baby needs to be fed and/or you should played with the baby. My Sims were fairly attentive to the baby without being told, but this might not always be the case. All interactions are found by clicking on the bassinet and the baby never leaves that immediate area.

Stinky Baby equals time for Diaper Change
When Babies get Stinky, it's time for a Diaper Change

When feeding, the mother has the option to bottle feed or breast feed. Everyone else can only bottle feed. Males pregnant with an alien baby can breast feed, however. The other interactions besides changing the dirty diaper are: Bounce, Coo At, Make Silly Face, Rock, Talk, Shoosh, Show Off To, and Age Up. Children will be able to Coo At and Talk to the baby. To use the Show Off To interaction, make sure the bassinet is not up against a wall. The person looking at the baby will stand at the head of the bassinet.

Leaving the House and Neglecting the Baby
Sims can all leave the house when there's a baby, no problem. The baby automatically gets sent to Day Care while the parents and others are away at work, or just out exploring to collect items. If a baby is neglected for a period of time, the baby will be taken away to safety. The baby will simply disappear in a green flash of light. This didn't seem to negatively impact the mother's ability to have more babies later.

Aging Up Babies To Toddler (you can Skip Past Baby)

A baby can be aged up to Toddler at any time after the birth by clicking on the bassinet. However, if you wish to wait until the normal aging time, you may wait it out by caring for them until this happens automatically. The only real benefit to letting the baby age on its own is to increase the relationship between the baby and other Sims in the house, while also giving you time to prepare to care for a toddler properly by giving them their own bedroom. All of the interactions your Sims can make with the baby will increase the relationship bar. When the time comes, the baby will age straight to a toddler who can roam the house and needs to learn Toddler skills. The duration a Sim's baby life stage will vary depending on which lifespan you're playing. On the short lifespan, it's about 1 1/2 days to age up to toddler. On normal lifespan, it's about 3 days.

Pregnancy Cheats

Mod Required
Only Try for Baby cheats (below) can be done without a mod. For other pregnancy cheats, you need to use a mod to unlock additional commands. Download TwistedMexi's Enable All Cheats Mod to get back the testingcheats that were removed. See instructions for using these cheats in the video below. Follow the link to subscribe to my channel and get notified of new video guides.

I have made a more detailed guide to Using Pregnancy Cheats in The Sims 4 where you can see the below video and then use step by step instructions to attempt to replicate my results.

Pregnancy Cheats in Sims 4

Pregnancy Cheats for The Sims 4

Try for Baby Cheat (By Raising Romantic Relationship Levels)
If you want to cheat to make your Sim have a high romance standing with another in order to try for baby, type modifyrelationship yoursimfirst yoursimlast targetsimfirst targetsimlast 99 romance_main - for example, modifyrelationship alex wilkis christy mooney 99 romance_main will make them have a near-max romance bar, which is capable of trying for baby with or without building friendship first. Use a few romance socials successfully, then hit try for baby and you're good!

Speed up Pregnancy (Requires Mod)
You cannot directly use a cheat to get pregnant, but you can cheat to get it over with faster. This works only when a Sim is pregnant, otherwise it makes them go through the labor without producing a baby. Type testingcheats on, followed by Sims.add_buff buff_pregnancy_inlabor. This works when males are pregnant with alien babies, as well.

Sims 4 Pregnancy Cheats
The multiple births cheat requires you to get a Sim ID number like above. Be sure you type your Sim's exact first and last name when using the cheat.

Forcing Twins, Triplets, and More (Requires Mod)
A cheat is availble to force multiple births as well. These require testingcheats on. First, you need to get your Sim's ID after they've been made pregnant normally (see above to max romance).

Type sims.get_sim_id_by_name firstname lastname to get the ID of the pregnant Sim.

Now you can influence how many births they have at once. It may work up to 7, but keep in mind that the maximum household size is 8. So do a little addition, and save your game first. It may hang quite a bit generating all these babies. Use the Sim's ID you got from the first cheat, for example 1341302010235.

Then type pregnancy.force_offspring_count 1341302010235 5 So pregnancy.force_offspring_count ID (number of babies). My example would produce 5 babies, but you need your Sim's actual ID number (that one's made up). Thankfully, the ID will stay in the box while you work on typing out the cheat! I tested this with the force labor cheat, and it does work. It's best to use the forced labor cheat right away after using this one. Without it, they will have the babies at the normal time, not right after using the cheat, but you'd have to stay home the whole time. Traveling breaks the multiple births cheat, so speeding up via fored labor keeps you from having issues. Save first to give yourself another shot if something goes wrong.

Quadruplet babies in The Sims 4
The quadruplets pictured were forced via the pregnancy cheats, proving they can work on a fully updated game, and when typed perfectly. The alien baby is a result of the male Sim having been pregnant before the save was loaded. He was already set by the game to have twins, but I knocked it back to 1 by cheating. So if your Sim has twins/triplets and you don't want that many, you can go back to a previous save and use the cheats to get only one baby.

Problems with the Cheat
This was possibly added from a patch, so cannot be used on out-of-date games. Players who have a pirate copy are likely left out on this one. Additionally, the cheat will not work if you reload the file after entering it. You are overriding what is already determined when the Sim gets pregnant - the number of babies to be born, so you'll have what the Sim was meant to have. On leaving the game file, you'd have to enter it again, and anything that messes with the status of testingcheats may render the command invalid (such as entering create-a-Sim). So, if you use these, plan to stay home and save during the third trimester, and save just before using them. If the cheat was entered correctly, you can immediately go into labor using the speed up pregnancy cheat, so that nothing can go wrong in the meantime.

This should help you get pregnant and care for your baby properly. From here, you can go on to learn about Toddlers and Raising Children and Getting Good Grades in School.

Is it possible that the mother of the baby could have gotten "bigger" after the pregnancy. In other words, does she gain any weight or are my eyes playing tricks on me?
Gravatar

Carlsays...

Pregnancy, inactivity and eating a lot of unhealthy food can all make Sims slowly gain weight. It's easily burned off by exercise. Most Sims will do well to at least dabble in fitness. Sims don't seem to gain as fast as they did in the past, but it can still creep on.

If they gain too much weight, use the cheat that makes drinks and other consumables infinite and then purchase an ista-large or insta-lean potion from the rewards store, and drink it, the cheat works! And yes sims tend to gain weight through pregnancy.

Anna, i have had my sim have over 10 babies in her lifetime. The first time She/He does not gain weight unless it is like twins or something. But after 2 or three her hips get bigger and her stomach keeps leftovers of the baby weight. I try to keep her daughter super skinny and she works out every day. So try to keep your sim fit and healthy.

sims.add_buff Pregnancy_InLabor (Doesn't work, see cheat in guide). Save first, and let us know how it goes. You may also need testingcheats on. This might work, given its a real pregnancy. I think without it being real, the Sim willl just pretend to have one when you click a bassinet.

Edit: Thanks for testing it guys, I got a working cheat into the guide above.

Thanks for letting me know. I got time to test it, and was able to figure out how we can help babies get cheated into the game. If you're already pregnant, I've provided a cheat in the guide above that will get labor started. If not pregnant but wanting to be, the other cheat will max romance between your Sim and the other Sim so that they can Try for Baby.

On doing some testing, I managed to update the page with a bit more info (F5 if you don't see it). It doesn't work immediately, so the cheat works best with the force labor afterward, because the Sim will have the normal amount of babies (whatever they were supposed to) if the game reloads in any way.

I've responded to your email and also updated the page with possible causes of the cheat not working. Hopefully we can collectively figure out what's causing them to not work for some people, short of syntax errors. I'll move them around a bit to make sure that people are aware of spaces/underscores on each cheat.

As far as forcing twins/triplets goes, does the "game reloading" include a trip to the hospital with Get to Work? If it does, do you know if you can use the cheat right before labor, when you're in the hospital, and it still work? It's only that I finally managed to get my dude sim knocked up with an alien after many, many, many (manymanymanymanyMANY) hours of gameplay, and I'll be a little disappointed it I can't go see the little rascal(s) in the hospital.

What is the matter here is this going to be a contant trend from EA? Why do male sims get pregnant its really bothering me! it does not make any sense at all is that suppose to increase game experience!
Admin: It's a Sims Alien thing. They've been known to do experiments on Sims and in general impregnate males. They are different in terms of how they reproduce. I consider it a test of their technology, they're able to make a normal guy pregnant and infest earth with their DNA.

WHAAAA?!?!?!?!?!? YOU DON'T KNOW EVERYTHING?!?!?!?!?!? Shocked <reaches into his wallet and pulls out 5 bucks> Well Pam, looks like you've won the bet.

But seriously, I remember how this site was when the very first Sims game came out and man I can not believe how it has grown so incredibly huge thanks to you & Pam's efforts. I can not express enough nor thank you enough for the time & effort that the two of you have put into this most amazing and wonderful site.

Hey thanks, we've had a lot of fun covering these last 2 games and hope to get to do more. The site has definitely gotten bigger than I'd ever imagined it would! I'm glad that Pam (and Tom!) joined me so early, it's made the site better to have someone who really likes making multi-generational families.

I just got my sim pregnant on the sims 4 and tried to get her id number so i can cheat her to have multiples but when i typed in the cheat to get the id it didn't do anything and testing-cheats was on. Did i do something wrong or is it my game?

Tips For using Cheats This should help.

How to get a Sim's unique ID number:
sims.get_sim_id_by_name [Sim's first and last names]

My sim is pregnant, but it is the first time I have ever had a pregnant sim in the sims 4. Do they sell pregnancy books in ts4?

Where do you find the ID of your sim?

Type sims.get_sim_id_by_name firstname lastname to get the ID of the pregnant Sim.
Do it as it says in the text, and you type that in the little box thingy (I'm tires, don't what to think of what it's called) by pressing ctrl, shift, and c at the same time. Then you type in the cheat thing to get the ID. Hope I helped! Smile

Did you put testingcheats on ? Or just testingcheats? You have to put on next to it to enable testingcheats! Smile

This cheat works perfectly for me! But when I grew my babies up into children the oldest (had her before I had the like triplets) disappeared! I could see her little picture down the bottom and her needs and she could talk to her family but she was just invisible and I couldn't see her little diamond or speech bubbles!

I Had issues with this.. But if you save it, go out to menu, come back in.. and follow the instructions above it works, personally i went for 5 Babies, quick way to fill up the last spaces in my family, only issue i had tho.. ( i tried 6 times before i finally gave up).. was the fact that it always came out 4 boys nd a girl.. :\ i already had a boy.. and id have liked more girls.. but still glad it worked.

0.0 My main Sim Declair Farstar was a Female Alien and she fell in love with married and Moved in her husband Sirius CanisMajor before they ever woohooed... Apparently Sirius was an alien as well >< The name really should have gave it away. Anyway about two days after the wedding I found out Declaire was Pregnant Yay! and the next day Sirius started to put on wieght. Well Turns out he was pregnant as well.

Eventually Declair had her babies... Twins and the next day Sirius had his as well... Twins.... SO now I have four Alien Babies and Two very stressed parents. Thank God I had Declaire at level seven of the Scientist Career before she had kids. This is my Legacy family 0.0 I was in shock with so many babies

Poor you. To prevent the sims from being stressed, you can try a thoughtful shower or brisk shower. Then just do things like fun to them. Make sure to take care of their needs. I hope this helped! GrinGrin

If your sim is Bigger then it should be, does that mean its possible for twins or triplets? Huh
Admin: Nah, only the fertility award and cheating affect the twin/triplet rate.. and perhaps the new fertility massage with Spa Day

I have a question. I know Sims can get pregnant in their household on Sims 4. But do Sims outside of the housebound, like the towns sims get pregnant? It doesn't seem like they can make babies on their own, but on the Sims 3 they could.
Admin: They only seem to do this if you play that household, then get pregnant while playing them. They will have the baby whether you play them or not at that point.
