The baby in my game will not grow up and I have had it for ages
Guest said: 5th Feb 2017 | REPORT
You need to finish a quest (or a couple) To get them to become a toddler
Guest said: 5th Feb 2017 | REPORT
It totally worked for me!
Guest said: 19th Feb 2017 | REPORT
You need to finish the Life Dreams and Legacies quest for sims to age up naturally. Before that you need to use a birthday cake. Hope this helps :D

My babies on sims freeplay have never grown up. I've had one for about 4 weeks and another for about 6 days. I'm on level 33 and have more than 85,000 LP. My babies are always. Interacted with but I still have no idea how to get them clean after they have soiled themselves. I have to use cupcakes to get them "clean" again. AND they're still babies!

My baby was dirty for 3 days till I moved it's cot away from the wall, so all 4 sides are clear, & have only had it's mother dealing with it. She wets her nappy, which makes her hygiene go red, mother changes nappy, toilet & hygiene go green again. But I wish she'd grow older already!

Have you done the previous quests? ( in order) or the 'life of your sims', won't change. Before the toddler quest can pop up, the mysterious island needs to be unlocked, and the quest about the horses needs to be finished. There is no cutting corners, I learn, so I am not sure how some people Miss the toddler quest? After I finish one,the next one shows on is obvious, since the blue and white box pops up, about the next quest.

for you to have the babies cot in a certain place in the room where the parents can get to the baby to change the baby and to feed it and change the Diaper and play with it and to pick it up you can have it against the wall but not where there is a light or something next to it where the parents cant pick the baby up the baby had to be laying down in the cot with the thing laying next to the baby facing the wall and put the child in the cot where the baby is looking at the wall

In order to have the baby "clean" after a diaper change sometimes you have to change them a lot ( sometimes 8x for me)

Ive completed the toddler quest but when I click to have a birthday it says I have to bake a cake. but the cake is 5 life style points which I dont have yet, and then it takes one day to bake the cake... I guess my question is will grow up after that? Or how will I go about getting more lifestyle points faster?
Guest said: 12th Dec 2016 | REPORT
To get more lifestyle points I just watch videos when they appear.
Guest said: 12th Feb 2017 | REPORT
You just have to get past this quest on level 12 and then press on the baby and it comes up with have a birthday and you press that and it will grow older every time you do that but you can't do that every day you can only do it like every two months

I heard that the quest sequence is not the same for everybody.. anyways i see a nanny sitting at the park i think she gives you the quest..but when i tap on her a message pops up saying the dancing quest and horse quest must be cleared first.. my babies will definitely take ages to grow up
Guest said: 12th Dec 2016 | REPORT
Guys I wouldn't complain if it takes a long time for your baby to grow up because it takes 3 years in real life to become a toddler.

I am doing the nanny quest now, which got me exited about unlocking new things for baby. After that, I will go back to the need for steed, though the barn, will cost 200k to build! And I am on Lv. 15. And I have 11 sims, including a baby boy and girl,both single children, plus another single baby for another couple. I try not to use up all my sims count, since I want room for children, I have 4 more spots left. When I created sims I try to have equal men and women.

I didn't think my baby was going to grow up but keep interacting with it and eventually there will be an option to "have a birthday" and you have to bake a birthday cake on the stove when it's done click the háve a birthday option again and it will become a toddler ! When it's grown it can go the toilet on it's own and things take longer and you need an adult for most things but they do grow up: I don't know if they become more than a toddler yet though haven't got that far !

Guest said: 31st Dec 2012 | REPORT
Keep pressing have a birthday . It will cost you. When its a baby and you have a baby it will grow to become a toddler, if you bake another cake and have another baby, it will grow into a preteen. Afterwards if you choose to have them grow some more, with another baked cake, they will become adults and will have to move out.

You have to have a birthday cake first then once it's done baking you have a birthday.

You have to have a birthday for the baby and they will grow up but you have to be on level 16 or 15 to bakr the birthday cake to have the baby. It cost about 10 LP I think

To get your baby to grow up you need 5 LP as it costs that to bake the birthday cake . The birthday cake will take a whole day to bake unless you pay LP to get it baked quicker.After you have baked the cake your baby will be a toddler it will be able to do things by itself like go to the toilet but it will still need it's parents help with things.After your baby is a toddler , if you have a birthday again it will be a pre-teen and if you have another birthday your child will be about 19 and will move out.After that you will need to have a new baby if you want one. This will cost you quite a lot of LP so you can spend much on furniture or buildings , but all in all it will be totally worth it Smile

Babies do grow up, but not in the way you think! You have to buy their birthday! First you have to buy a stove and if you don't have one, then buy one. Then click on the stove and recipes should come up. Click on the birthday cake one ( you must be on level 8 to bake the cake!) it cost 5lp and takes 24hrs to make. Once it's done click on your baby and do have birthday and he/she should instantly become a toddler! You can also give a birthday cake to a toddler and they'll become a preteen! Hope I helped! ;)

Guest answered:

No. In order for it to get older on the sims freeplay you must bake a birthday cake on your stove and then tap on it to select birthday. That will make it grow older.

You don't wait for your baby to grow up; you get to choose when. When you're up to Level 11, you will be able to bake a Birthday Cake from the stove. (you need to buy a stove for your baby to grow up) I think the birthday cake takes about 1 day to bake, so you have to wait 1 day unless you use LP. (lifestyle points) After the cake is baked, collect it and then click on your baby. Click the option 'Have Baby' and your baby will grow into a toddler, which takes 3 seconds. I hope this helped!

Everyone keeps asking how you make the kids grow up, but… do they HAVE to grow up? I want two kids to be the same age, but I don't think I'll be able to get them within a very close time period. Help!

It is really simple but it took me a while to figure out. So you interact with the baby and "have a birthday" but you also have to make a birthday cake! But after you do those steps you will have a cute toddler! :D

Ok, so here's how you age them: When you get to Level 12, complete the "A Quest for Toddlers" quest. Then, click on the baby. One of your action options will be 'Have Birthday.' Press it. Obviously. Smile

Your babies will only grow up automatically if you have completed the life dreams and legacies task/quest which is like the last one so if your on level 14, you wouldn't have reached it yet. Since you haven't completed this quest yet, you will need to buy a birthday cake for 5LP and make your baby "have birthday" once the cake is done and that will grow it into a toddler
Guest answered:
Added 14th Aug 2015, ID #668946
Well, you have to complete "a quest for toddlers" and once you have completed that you can bake a cake for 5 LP and it takes 24 hrs, after that you select the baby you want to grow into a toddler then you press have birthday and kapeesh you have yourself a toddler!!

I sincerely hope this has been helpful!!
