We know that the Sims are so much like real life. It is as if you’re the creator, summoning all the human being into a new world. One way increasing the Sims population in Sims is by trying for a baby. The end line is that the gender of the baby is random. However, there are a few things that you can do in order to influence a particular gender of your new child.
So if you have finally decided for a baby and want them to be a particular gender, there are some things you can do to influence this. Today in this guide, we’ll take you through the things you can do to influence the possibility of a particular gender for the child you’re expecting to have. Just start following this right after you’ve tried for a baby. So without any further ado, let’s see how to increase chances of having a girl or boy baby in The Sims 4
How to Increase Chances of having a Girl or Boy Baby in The Sims 4
1. Influencing a girl
Strawberries: Out of the two ways we have, the first to practice is eating strawberries in order to influence the possibility of a girl child. You’ll see wild strawberries growing in many places around the game, especially in Willow Creek. You can also buy strawberries from or by plating them around your Sims’ home. Plating them might be the most versatile choice, however, it is also to be considered that the fruit is seasonal and will only harvest in Spring.
Pop Music: The second way to influence the possibility of a girl child is by listening to pop music. You’ll be able to stream pop music on any stereo or with earbuds if you have Fitness Stuff installed. However, the Sims are limited to do activities in one room, the room where the stereo is in while listening to music. But the earbuds are portable, meaning that you can go anywhere while listening to music.
2. Influencing a boy
Carrots: Just like the strawberries to influence the possibility of a girl, you’ll need to consume plenty of carrots to influence the possibility of a boy child. You’ll be able to find wild carrots in many locations in the game, mostly in Oasis Springs. Alternatively, you can also buy carrots from produce stalls or plant them around your Sims’ house. However, planting them is the most convenient method to get access to carrots anytime but it is subject to seasons in the game, meaning it will harvest only in Spring and Fall.
Listen to Alternative music: We discussed earlier that listening to pop music will influence the possibility of a girl child. But if you’re looking for a boy, then listen to Alternative music. For this, you can use either the stereo or earbuds. If you go with stereo, you’ll only be able to do other things in the same room as the stereo while listening to music. Using earbuds doesn’t limit you in a room or a place since it is portable and you go anywhere while listening to music with it.
Summing up our guide, we have 2 methods for each gender that we want to influence the birth. These are eating strawberries and listening to pop music to influence the possibility of a girl child and eating carrots and listening to alternative music to influence the possibility of a boy child. Although these measures will increase the chances, there will always be a touch of a random gender in the final stage.
