The Sims 4: 100 Baby Challenge
Sims 4 challenges are a perfect way to freshen up gameplay if you're waiting for an expansion to come out. The Sims 4 100 Baby Challenge is not for the faint of heart, however, as it involves giving birth and raising 100 babies in as few generations as possible.

The Sims 4: 100 Baby Challenge: Goals
The main goal of the 100 Baby Challenge is a simple concept, have a sim give birth and raise as many babies as possible. Players must get to 100 babies in as few generations as possible. As sims can only produce offspring during the young adult and adult life stages, this narrows the window of opportunity and creates an added challenge.
Players tend to maximise their numbers by trying for triplets and twins as much as possible. However, as you can only have a maximum of eight sims per household, the other aspect of the challenge is a quick turnaround. This means getting your children to the young adult life stage and moving them out of the house as quickly as possible so that you can make space for more babies to add to the count.
This challenge is widely popular amongst the sims community, with many simmer YouTubers picking up the challenge for 'Let's Plays'.
