How do you get the quest to age them up?
Guest said: 1st Dec 2018 | REPORT
Mine just alerted me with a notification and all I had to do was press the icon above his head, it did take a few days though.

You have to bake a cake to age them up. AAfter level 26 you get a quest and afterwords and baby preteen pr teen will age up on there own after a little. You also get dreams I think

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!

Bake a cake after yu do the nanny quest
Guest answered:

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!

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

You have to bake a birthday cake in the stove, or oven. It costs 5 lp, and it takes a day to make it.

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.

Guest answered:

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 !

How long does it take?
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.
Guest answered:

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

Guest answered:

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

You don't need to be on level 15-16. I had a baby at level 10 and I've had the option to bake a cake since the baby was born.
Guest answered:

Bake it a birthday cake it costs ten LP but if you save uP you'll have the lp in no time! Smile

Guest answered:

You got to have a birthday

Guest answered:

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

Tiffles answered:

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! ;)

You have to be 12lvl
Guest said: 22nd Jun 2015 | REPORT
Thx it helped
Guest answered:

You have to click on the baby and choose the option 'have birthday' and it will grow older Smile

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.

Guest answered:

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!

Guest answered:

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!

I mean, yes they do have to grow up, but you’ll be forced to make them grow up, or you can’t get past the quest.

You have to complete other quests before you are ready to do the quest for toddlers. I'm on the quest before and I'm still waiting to age up my babies

The last comment says that it starts on level 11 and I'm on level 14
Guest answered:

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

How do you make a birthday cake

Guest answered:

Just received my new baby girl and she is SOOOOO CUTE!!!!! But I hope it doesn't take too long for her to grow and mature into a toddler and throughout her life!? How long will it take? For my baby to mature, do I have to complete the "Life And Legacies" Quest?

Guest answered:

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

Im on level 12 but the birthday cake isnt avaliable what do i doo
Guest answered:

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:

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!!

Suzi Soul answered:

To Age an infant sim to be a toddler you must first complete the 'A Quest for toddlers' quest which is attained at level 12

Guest answered:

Guest answered:

First of all you have to be on level 12 then there will be a Quest for toddlers that lets you have a birthday but to have a birthday you need a stove then you need to bake a birthday cake then have a birthday!🎉
