Infants are among the biggest new inclusion in The Sims 4. Following up on the free infants update, the Growing Together expansion pack further expands on their mechanics. Quirks, new discoverable items for infants and toddlers, help bring these younger Sims to life. Here’s how infant quirks work in The Sims 4.
How Infant Quirks Work
Since infants do not have any traits yet, quirks were introduced as a way to show their budding personalities. You’ll discover these quirks through gameplay, and they impact how your infant reacts to certain interactions with others. Up to three quirks are assigned from a pool of 18. The options are different from those available for Toddlers.
