Infants have unique personalities!

The Sims 4 Growing Together livestream on Friday didn’t just cover the new Growing Together expansion pack. Also, it dedicated a whole segment to base game additions coming in the next update, including the long-awaited infants! The Sims 4 infant traits will give your infants a unique personality. In addition, infant traits also determine how each individual infant reacts to the world around them. Let’s dive right into all the new traits for infants coming to the base game!

Players will be able to select one out of six new traits for their infants when they age up from newborns.

  • Cautious
  • Sensitive
  • Calm
  • Intense
  • Wiggly
  • Sunny

Additionally, these Sims 4 infant traits reflect various temperaments of infants in the real world. We got to see the most of the Cautious trait in the livestream since the devs selected this trait for their infant. Cautious infants will appreciate being near familiar Sims and places but can take longer to warm up to new experiences. Also, a cautious infant will be less inclined to like new foods straight away; they’ll need to try it a few times before they decide if they like it or not.

Moreover, we didn’t see the other traits in action but the devs did talk a little bit about some of the other Sims 4 infant traits. They mentioned that Intense infants will have big emotions and be very fussy and difficult to calm down. Sunny infants are little angels who are always happy and very easy to care for. Also, wiggly infants will have a hard time falling asleep on their own. They’ll need a caregiver to help lull them to sleep with lullabies or other soothing bedtime interactions.

Furthermore, the aim with the Sims 4 infant traits was to make raising infants a unique experience each time. Also, depending on the temperament of your infant, your Sims will have to employ different parenting strategies to keep them happy and help them thrive. We think they nailed it and we can’t wait to play with these traits ourselves on March 14th!
