If you want to give your Infant the best chance at a good life, reaching as many Milestones as you can is one of the best ways to get started. We’ve compiled a list of all Infant Milestones and how to reach them so your sims can live full, enriched lives!
Although Infants are now a Base Game life stage in The Sims 4, the Growing Together expansion added oodles of extra content to sims’ lives that begin when they’re born. One of the more notable additions is Milestones, which inform a sim’s life as they grow and age.

As you can see, there are a bunch of different moments your Infant can experience that all build upon each other to unlock even more of them. A lovely side effect of reaching these Infant milestones is that because so many of them require caregiver interaction, your sims will be growing their relationships with their Infants at the same time. It’s a win-win!
