How do you move toddler into new home?

I had a family, married couple and toddler, and wanted to move into new home and it said could not move married couple into new home, so I got them divorced. I moved them both into a new home separatly and now they are dating again. But the toddler now owns the house with no adults. How can I move him to the new house with his parents?

I didn't think it would've been possible for a toddler to be in the house on it's own without any adults...
But try moving one of the parents into the house with the toddler and moving them out together? I wouldn't really know...
But I hoped this helped ..

You Want a preteen you have to pay real money

I have the same problem with preteens though it won’t let me move them in with their parents

I have this problem I made a sim moved her into a beautiful house the next I bought a crib not even thinking about it I pushed add baby and so then I created a little girl then I called a guy sim over and they got married but when I did the ask to move in I did the wrong person so they live in a completely different house then the toddler and poor her she is the only sim with the Collins last name because the mom before she got married her last name was Collins I need help because a toddler can’t own a house and she’s all alone. The sims should add a version where you can adopt children from other families like if they don’t want the child anymore well I mean you because they still would keep the kid it’s like if you don’t want that familie to have a kid anymore then another family can adopt it like what if you get the sims divorced then the kids alone

I have an elaborate plot to my neighborhood. I'm going to use random names you won't know but just to with it. Rui married Erin, and they didn't get children. then rui cheated on Erin with Tara without either girls knowledge of the other relationship. Erin found out, and everyone in the neighborhood hated Tara except for Jessica because she got her side of the story. Everyone finally understood Tara and Tara and Jessica started dating. Tara has moved in with Jessica since then, but she and Rui had a child already. They went to court and the judge decided Rui was unfit to gather gideon. Rui left town to start a new life, and Gideon is stuck with mortgage papers because I can't figure out how to move him into his mom's home!!! Help!!!!!!

I can't find the " ask to adopt" button! And I am best friends with the toddlers😩😩
Guest said: 25th Dec 2016 | REPORT
Just go to the house. Use an adult sim to pick up the baby and then click on the spouse of that sim so it takes you to their house and call over the sim that's carrying the baby
Guest said: 24th Nov 2017 | REPORT
Wait til the sim is preteen then use the asl to move in option if they are best friends
Guest said: 18th Jun 2022 | REPORT
I tried this and it worked for me
So you have to delete both parents from the town
And then you make the toddler be good friends with an adult SIM
An adopt button will come up with the other interactions
Just click on that
It also works on all children
Guest answered:

You can't I have that problem as well. Now my toddler owns the house and I can't get rid of the house.

So guys one of my sims was pregnant but before she gave birth to the baby, I moved her with her husband to another house and the crib for the upcoming baby is in the old house and when she gave birth to the baby, the baby was in the crib in the old house. Then the baby became toddler so how do I give the toddler back to her parents who are in another house?

The toddler needs to be good friends with any adult sims, not necessarily their parents. You will have the option "ask to adopt" or something of that ish. Hope it helped.

Guest said: 28th Jul 2015 | REPORT
First, your a little right, but it happened to me so I pretend that the parents died and left the house for the baby. Though for the baby when needs are low I pretend that they are visiting. Though just make sure the baby is happy. Though the other house can just be a inn for sims.

2015 new update here! When u relocate a household then none of the kids will stay home alone hope it helped
Guest said: 30th Nov 2016 | REPORT
Nope. My toddler owns a house too I have her stay with her mom and her new dad but she doesn't live there now I have an empty house that I guess I will have to save for when she is an adult lol
Guest answered:

Family drama!
We're evil people.
When you click on an empty house you have a bunch of options and one of them is move a sim - DON'T do that one. Next to it, you have the option to move a household for 8,000. It's a lot cheaper and more permanent than 5,000 for each sim.

Guest answered:

This happened to me, I had 2 Sims who has a preteen as a whole family then I made them divorce, and my female sim got married to a different one and they moved in that house but the other male sim (father) is with the daughter in a different house.. So I just have to whistle her.. Which just ruined my game because I spent a lot of time saving for the beachside escape last year.. Mhmm

The same thing happened to me I saved up for a mantion on a beachside escape and I got my married sims divorced and I'm triangle to get them re married but they had an infant and now the infant owns the house
Guest answered:

You can move a baby!
If you bought the new home and you want to transfer the family plus baby, click on the new home, click "view house", then add rooms, then the game will allow you to move the family

Guest answered:

All you have to do is wait for them to get older

Unicorn rainbow awesomeness answered:

All I know is you can divorce the parents, then move one of them, and make them good friends and move them into each other's house and remarry them. Then I don't know what to do.

Guest answered:

I am having the same problem I kicked my Adult sim out of the house then I wanted to move them in with another guy I wanted the mom to marry I made them good friends and the mom moved in with the other guy she moved in and then my toddlers r living in a house by themselves and idk what to do and I don't want them to stay in that house until they grow older because I want it to be one preteen and one toddler living with them I need help I'm so confused

Guest answered:

You don't have to divorce the parents! All you have to do is when you want to move the whole family to a new house, you click on the house and it will give a couple options(add new sim, view house...etc). Scroll until you see the option to move a household. Then it will let you pick which family you want to move into the newhouse. This costs 8,000 simoleans.

Guest answered:

The same thing happened to me. I deleted the dad box I wanted the mom to be married to a sim I created. I wanted then to have his last name so I moved mom toddler and baby to a empty house and when the mom moved in with her new man the kids stayed. I don't know how to move them. So if anyone has any clues please tell me. IPod touch 4th gen.

Guest answered:

I made the toddler and the Adult 'good friends' and then I could click 'ask to adobt

Guest answered:

I had the samé problem! I also divorced them, and now the child lives on it's own!!
- well, you can remove the child from town and have a new one
- or, you can try getting the child the ones on the other house of your married couples!!
Hope this helped

Guest answered:

That happened to me too. I tried to move a father and toddler off a boat into a house and ended up stranding the preteen on the boat. The father can't move back in because they can't have a relationship that will end in 'partner' where they can move in. The best I could do was have adults come and take care of the tasks that a preteen can't do for herself. Later I made her a teen and she was fine living alone on the boat. When I finished the Adult phase I made her an adult right away. I think this happened because the toddler was adopted using the phone instead of brought up from an infant crib. Since then I don't move any families with adopted Children.

Please tell me how!
Guest answered:

U did the right thing by divorcing them, what I did is when I was in that situation except the toddler didn't have parents, I made the toddler good friends with another sim and eventually you get the option "Ask to be adopted" and there you go. Hope this helps and also, this only works if the toddler is living in a house by itself

How do I move the toddler in with the new couple

Make the toddler and the parent become good friends then click the parent and click as to be adopted. It worked for me

Guest answered:

Both my sim parents have moved on. This left a toddler and baby alone in the house. I have been able to get the toddler to be adopted by making her friends with an Adult but not having any luck making friends with the baby. Will I have to wait until the baby becomes a toddler before I can re home her?

I would normally do that, but then if I added the mom back to the town how would I give her the toddler back?
Guest answered:

Help I deleted the husband and tried to move the mom and her toddler daughter into her friends home so they could be roommates but it only moved the mom and now her toddler owns the house. What do I do!

Guest answered:

If you want the baby to just love with one of the pare at you have to relocate the whole house hold to a new house that you want them in and they get divorced and have one of the Adult Sims move into a friends house or a new one.

Guest answered:

Make them move back in with the toddler (probably make them divorce again, then move them in with the todler separatist and get them back together) and then do click the house you want them to all move to and do relocate household and select that family. Hope this helped😊

Guest answered:

Age toddler to teen and move it to it's parents' house.

Guest answered:

You hafta build a new house, select "relocate household" it costs $8000, then select the family you wanna put there.

Guest answered:

Divorce parents then get one of the parents to be best friends with the baby and then it will say move in.

Guest answered:

You were supposed to move the household. Just figured it out now💙

Guest answered:

You could've selected relocate household on the empty house.

Guest answered:

There is a way to adopt a sim child. You have to pick a sim that you want to adopt the kid and then you have to make that sim and that sim child good friends and then it should let you have an option to adopt the child. Hope this works for you! I tried it and it worked!

Guest answered:

You cannot move the toddler into a new he until they turn into a teen

Guest answered:

I was trying to figure this out too. I recently divorced my Sims and I wanted the baby to live with his mom. I was playing around with it and this isn't what I learned.

-have a sim take the baby out of it's crib
-place the crib in the inventory
-put the crib in the house you want the child at
-have a sim pick up the child and go to that house
-place the baby in the crib at it's now newly home

Hope this works!! It did for me so I wish you luck!

I just figured it out! Ok,I had a family (mother father toddler daughter) then I divorced the parents. The father moved in with a rich girl and the mother stayed with the daughter. I wanted the mom to remarry to this rich French guy who is an Artist so I let them move into the small house that belonged to the mom and then relocated the household into his fancy French house which was empty so I didn't have problems like you guys did. I hope this helps you like it helped me.

Guest answered:

I had the same issue, I had two married Sims with two infants. I built a nicer house and wanted them to move in there, it wouldn't let me so I divorced the mother and father and gave the nice house to the mother. After a long time, I finally got the two sims married. I moved both the cots and the father into the new house. I had one of the infants grow into a toddler and now even though the toddler has it's bed at the new house it still lives in the old house with it's infant sibling, and the toddler is best friends with the mother and friends with the father. AND the little infant's cot in the new house appears with an add sim symbol above it's head.😕

Is it possible to have a diff sim adopt the toddler and for the parents to adopt her bk?
Guest answered:

You can adopt babies, toddlers, preteens, and teens into new homes, but the parents have to be deleted first, otherwise the adopting option will not appear. As for the people who divorced the parents and the parents remarried into different homes without the child, you can't adopt the kid back into the family because technically they already have parents. You have to delete both biological parents for the kid to be adopted again, otherwise they will live in the house by themselves until you grow them into adults. If you really don't want to delete the parents, just make a room in one of the new Houses for the child and pretend that they live there. That's all you can do, really.

Guest answered:

Sadly other than buying a house or making the child an orphan, I can’t find a way to do it! The child I need to move into the new house I created in a crib and moved that family as the 24 hours was ticking:( the family is now in one house and the baby owns a house. Really the only ways are to buy a new house and move the family or make the child an orphan :(
