What is a Baby?

In order for you to carry on your legacy, you should have a baby. This is not an easy decision in the real world since this is a responsibility. Babies will grow up soon and become part of our society.
In the Sims Mobile, making a baby is not an easy task either. You have to meet certain requirements first. Use this guide to make your own baby!

How to have a Baby?


The initial requirements are your Player Level and your relationship level with other Sims.
Player Level is your actual progress status in the game while the Relationship Level is your status with other Sims.
To unlock this feature, you should be at least Player Level 11 and at least Relationship level 3 with other Sims. It can be Friends, Romantic Interest, or even Enemy.
Once you've got those requirements mentioned above, you'll be getting two new quests. "Oh, Baby!" and "Baby Crazy". You need to complete these quests to start having a baby in the game.

By purchasing the Bassinet in the catalog under Babies & Kids Section, you can complete the "Baby Crazy" quest. This is the second important requirement if you want to have a baby. The Bassinet will cost you 600 Simoleons. If you are filthy rich, you can also buy some other baby stuff to add more baby interactions. Baby Genius Mobile or Cuddly Bear is highly suggested but not totally recommended.

Use the Bassinet

Once you have tapped the Bassinet, you can select one of the 3 actions. You can adopt a boy, a girl or have a baby in a natural way. Each action will cost you a few Energy and Sim Tickets.

Selecting "Having a baby with..." will make your Sims do the WooHoo action. This will last for 30 minutes. If you can't wait to see your baby, you can use SimCash to speed up timers, but it is not recommended. Selecting this interaction will product a random gender of the baby. You can also "Adopt" to select your kid's gender. There will be no WooHoo action, but your Sims will wait in front of the Bassinet instead.

After performing the baby making action, you will find a baby lying in the Bassinet. You should name your baby to your liking. You can feed the baby and change their diaper. As days go by, this tiny creature will soon grow and become an adult.

Bundle of Joy Event

This is the first event that you and your baby will have. This will unlock the "Good Upbringing" trait that will make your kid better at "all events once they grow up. Check out guide for Bundle of Joy Event!

Why make a baby?

Aside from being a legacy and giving us XP in every interaction with them, babies or kids can grow up and become playable Sims. Creating a Sim will cost you 95 Sim Ticket. Making a baby or kid as a playable grown up Sim is cheaper.
Once these kids grown as an adult and retire, they will also give heirlooms.

Aging the Baby up into a Toddler

After completing the "Bundle of Joy" event, it’s time for the baby to grow up!

To do this, you must do interactions with the baby and complete sets of family event. It will take a day or two depending on your activeness in the game.

Once you see a blue birthday cake icon on top of the bassinet, tap on it. It will age up the baby into a toddler. Enjoy their cuteness while it last!

Keep on perform events with them until you see another blue birthday cake. This will appear in every milestone. This is your signal that your child will change his/her appearance in the game. Eventually, you can make them playable and help them build their own legacy.

Helpful Tip

It’s best to make your own baby with your playable Sims. Don’t make a baby with other players, since they may retire their Sims early without you knowing it.

A tip for the baby quest and all quest with a time limit is to help your sim until you run out of energy then if you have another sim help them with qeusts and other stuff you want them to do as you help your other sim keep a eye on your that is doing the qeust with a time limt. AND IF YOU HAVE A CUPCAKE USE THEM TO GIVE YOUR SIM FULL ENERGY OR SEE IF ANY OF THE OTHER THINGS ARE AVAILABLE.

Personally, I try to interact a lot with the baby, and the Bundle of Joy event appears once a day. So I would say maybe 3 days until it grows up if you interact with him/her a lot

its because ur not interacting with it enough and the mom and the dad has to interact with it
I would like my sim to have a baby on her own, no partners, no relationships. That's possible in real life, it would be great to have that option in the game too. Please, developers, enable an in-vitro fertilization option for women that want to raise a kid alone. Thank you!
I don't get this part: It’s best to make your own baby with your playable Sims. Don’t make a baby with other players, since they may retire their Sims early without you knowing it.

How is this a problem? Is it dual control, one player takes the control and the retirement of the other affects the child? Please explain how retirement affects a born sim.
Um, I just had a baby with someone else's sim. Is it a problem?
This rlly helped thanx

I'll share you some tips regarding first baby event.

There are 7 long events, normally it means you need 7 * 8 hours (56 hours) to complete it without any actions.

#1st tips: if you do it between your 2 own sims, each event will be reduced to 4 hours. It means you only have to spend 7 * 4 hours (or 28 hours) without help. Luckily having two sims do it means you have 2*30 energy to help it faster. You can imagine it yourself.

#2nd tips: if you already have 3rd sim when you do it the first time. You can save some time by reduce 1 duplicate event (either baby 101 or baby proofing, you can only choose one of it ). For example you don't wanna repeat baby proofing, at the time you do the first baby proof event, your 2 sim and your other sim (with its partner) execute the same event. One will last 4 hours, the other 8 hours. Never complete the 8 hours event, until the 2 sims reach the 2nd baby proof event. You save time by complete the other pair event.
