There are several ways to have a baby girl in Sims 4: either you can use the in-game mechanics provided by the developers and thus increase the probability of the desired sex of the child, or don’t bother and use cheats, getting the 100% result. Each approach has its own advantages, and we will discuss them all.
We also recommend reading an article about what affects the conception of a boy.
The process of coming to the world in Sims 4 is very different from the previous parts of the series, so the methods of family planning and conception of the right sex are different here.
In total there are five legal ways to affect the chance of conceiving a girl child in Sims 4 during pregnancy. These include:
- Eating strawberries and watermelons,
- listening to pop music,
- the timing of conception,
- flirty moods
- taking the initiative from a female Sim.
Note that without the use of cheats, you can only influence the sex of the unborn child in the 1st-3rd trimester of pregnancy.
In other words, before the sim has found out about his interesting situation or already during childbirth, eating strawberries, and watermelons and listening to pop music will not have any effect.
Now let’s break down each method in more detail.
Time of conception
The very first parameter that affects the birth of a girl is the process of conception itself.
In order for a girl to be born in Sims 4, you must engage in woohoo strictly at a certain game time between 15:00 and 00:00.
- You can use any location, be it a bed, shower, bush, or kissing booth. The location has no effect on the success of conceiving a girl.
- It also doesn’t matter the cost of the stuff (cheap or high-end) on which you perform the woohoo.
Simply select two characters for sexual intimacy and click on “conceive” wherever possible.
Eating strawberries and watermelons
The second thing you can do to have a baby girl in Sims 4. In the previous installments, as in Sims 4, food had a small effect on the likelihood of having one or the other gender of the baby.
It is important to eat these foods throughout the pregnancy, not just once.
Strawberries can be obtained in the following ways:
- Gathering. Wild strawberries grow on the outskirts of Willow Creek.
- Grow them in your garden. By buying seeds from a shop and planting them in beds. Note that with the Seasons add-on installed, you will only be able to do this in spring.
- With the “Seasons” update there is a random chance to get strawberries when buying seed packets.
- You can also buy strawberries from shops in your town, from a fruit and vegetable stall, or from your computer.
To get watermelons, follow the steps below:
- Buy seeds through your computer by right-clicking on it and selecting the actions “Order” – “Buy Seeds”.
- Or interact with the garden pots in your vegetable garden by selecting “Buy Seeds”.
- You can also get seeds from the outskirts of town or from your neighbor’s vegetable garden if he is growing watermelons.
- Grow watermelons in your own garden using seeds from your luggage.
Listening to pop music
Listening to pop music also has a big impact on the birth of a girl in Sims 4. All you will need is to purchase a stereo in the electronics section of the build menu.
Turn on your stereo and select the “Pop Music” option.
Try to listen to this genre as often as possible to raise the chances of a girl being born to the maximum.
Romantically inclined characters have a better chance of giving birth to a girl when engaging in woohoo. You can use these tips to get your sympathizer in a flirty mood:
- Create a romantic atmosphere by, for example, calling your partner out or performing romantic actions with them, such as kissing, hugging, flirting, etc.
- Drink ginseng tea. This drink will boost your Sim’s flirtatiousness for a while.
- Take a hot bubble shower, it will also make the characters playful and flirty.
- Turn on the TV and select the “Romantic Comedy” trait.
- Add the Romantic Aura trait to your plot. After that, the characters will be more likely to get flirty and flirt with each other.
Now all that remains is to engage in woohoo by selecting ‘Conceive a baby’ while the desired muzzle is in effect.
Showing initiative from a girl sim
Many players claim that initiative from the female sim also increases the chance of a girl being born in Sims 4. To manifest your alpha female:
- Select your sim girl as the control.
- Approach your partner and click on “Conceive a baby”.
- Do not switch to the male character during the whole process.
For best results, use all methods together, this will greatly increase the chances of success.
If hoping for randomness doesn’t work for you, use the code for giving birth to a girl in Sims 4.
How to do it:
- Open the in-game console with the key combination Ctrl+Shift+C.
- Next, the developer code: Testingcheats true.
- After that, reopen the console and type cas.fulleditmode.
- Now left-click on the child while holding down Shift and select “Change Character”.
- Change the gender of the child in the character creation menu.
This code will allow you to create a baby girl after the baby is born.
