The recent update to The Sims 4 base game, commonly referred to as the “Infants Update,” has revolutionized the way babies are portrayed in the game. The update has introduced a new life stage known as “infants,” bridging the gap between the newborn and toddler stages, thereby addressing the limitations of the previous baby’s life stage. With this update, players can now experience a more realistic and engaging simulation of parenting, as infants require more attention and care from their caregiver Sims. This not only adds a layer of complexity to the game but also makes the experience of raising a Sim family more rewarding and immersive.

This expansion pack brought with it a wealth of new features, interactions, and objects designed to enhance the family gameplay experience even further. One such milestone is the ability to feed infants on a high chair, a new and exciting interaction that requires players to take a whole new approach to feed their babies. This feature allows players to enjoy a more realistic family dynamic, as they navigate the challenges of feeding a growing infant in a safe and comfortable manner in The Sims 4.
How To Feed Infants In Base Game
Feeding infants in The Sims 4 has become more intricate since the addition of the Growing Together expansion pack. In the base game, feeding infants is relatively simple, with three different interaction options available. Players can choose to breastfeed or bottle-feed their baby or feed them baby food by interacting with a high chair. However, if the caregiver Sim is unable to produce breast milk, they won’t be able to breastfeed their baby.

The high chair is a new addition to infant care in the game, which was previously only available for toddlers. This adds a fun and unique element to infant care, allowing players to observe their reactions to different tastes and preferences. These small details add a level of realism and uniqueness to each individual infant in the game. It is important to note that baby food does not require any cooking skills from the caregivers, nor does it require any ingredients or Simoleons.

With the Growing Together expansion pack, players can closely monitor the growth stages of their infants through the newly added Milestone feature and objects. Even though infants depend heavily on their caregivers, there can be a significant difference between a Day 1 infant and a Day 10 infant. As newborns age up to infants, players can directly feed them through bottle-feeding or breastfeeding, but giving them baby food is only possible after reaching a certain milestone, which is the “Sit Up” milestone.

To achieve this, caretaker Sims must engage in the Tummy Play interaction with their infants for an extended period. As they progress, infants will master skills such as moving on their back, rolling onto their front, and other milestones before finally being able to sit up.
