All Infant Milestones and How to Reach Them!

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.

Closing Thoughts

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!

Have you unlocked all Infant Milestones yet? If not, we hope this list has provided useful information so you can unlock those final elusive achievements. Have fun with your Infants, and happy simming!

I've been playing The Sims since the first game launched way back in 2000 and have been using CC for over 20 years. As a creative person with an interest in design, The Sims games have always been a great outlet for me whether I'm creating a cool sim, trying a new build style, or dabbling in CC making. The Sims really is a wonderful medium for all sorts of creative outlets and I'm happy to share my enthusiasm with other like-minded players!
