There are a lot of add-on packs for The Sims 4 that allow you to access new areas, get additional clothing, and even allow your Sims to live an upscale lifestyle. The Infant update for Sims 4 was released on March 14 and, just like previous updates to the base game, it is free for everyone to enjoy. When you boot up the EA Launcher on your PC or launch the game on your console, the update will automatically start downloading. Be prepared since the update size is about 10 gigabytes so it could take a bit to download depending on your internet speed.

The update is a decent size because it contains a lot of additions to the base game involving infants and prepares the game for the Growing Together update that is set to release on March 16. Thanks to the Infant update, you will now be able to see your Sims’ children wander around the house. Your Sims will also be able to interact with infants and be able to perform actions like breastfeeding and bottle feeding. The infants will even be able to interact with pets within your household.

Perhaps the biggest addition in the update is the ability to create infants in the character creator. You can now style the babies that your family has as well as give them traits that determine how they behave around the house. There is also the addition of Science Babies that can be ordered to your house and arrive within a quick timeframe, so be prepared for when they arrive.
