An easy way to name the kids, is to save the game every once in a while and if you give the wrong name just restart your wii without saving and name it again.

If You Want To Know If Your Sims Is A Boy Or A Girl. Right Before She Goes To The Hospital Or Sometime As Soon As She Goes To The Hospital There Is A Stork In Your Wishes At The Bottom Of The Screen. If You Hover Over That It Will Tell You If Its A Boy Or A Girl . But You Have To Hurry Because Once She Gets Out Of The Hospital And Haves The Baby It Goes Away.

when your sim is having a baby in the wish thing it will come up with have a boy/girl press it and when you go to the hospital it will either go or stay if you pressed have a boy and it goes away it's a girl and if it stay's it's a boy etc

this game has a lot of faults that need to be fixed. of course you all know this. but i think that it was almost like a test to see if sims could be played on the wii. so im thinking the people who developed it will make another with improvements based on comments like these.

I never name my babies for the wrong gender. I just look in the wish thingy for the mom and whatever gender it says she wants will 80% of the time be right.

What I do is a soon as I see she is taken to the hospital, I save the game. And if it turns out to be a boy and I put a girl name. I just quit out and then load the game and name the boy.

People, quit complaining- You need to go about 10 sim-minutes early (before 8a.m. or 9p.m.) then try entering BANG ON 8a.m. or 9p.m.
