Is there a Sims 4 infant changing table missing bug?
With the free March 14 base game update, a host of new features was added to The Sims 4, including the new infant life stage and various build mode and CAS infant items.
One such item seems to be missing from the free update – changing tables for infants.
In the game, instead of magically disappearing diapers, sims will now produce dirty diapers upon changing their babies. There currently isn’t an interaction available to 'change infant at the changing table' instead, you will change them as normal but drop a dirty diaper upon completion of the animation.
This had left some fans disappointed as changing tables have been shown on promotional material for The Sims 4: Growing Together expansion, leading some to believe that the more interesting infant interactions will be locked behind a paywall.
It is true that expanded activities and milestones for infants will be added with the expansions and not the free base game update.
As such, EA has not spoken about the lack of base game-changing tables this far so it doesn’t seem to be a bug but rather a development choice.
For a full list of all the new items with the free base game update, see below.
