Like every other game ever made for PC, The Sims 4: Parenthood DLC is affected by a series of technical issues. In this article, we’ll list the most common Parenthood DLC bugs reported by players as well as their corresponding workarounds, if available.

The Sims 4: Parenthood DLC issues

Players can’t purchase the game pack

I’m having issues when I try to purchase the new GP through Origin, an error message pops up. I’m not sure what to do, I’ve tried restarting my PC and checked the internet but that didn’t help.

If you can’t buy the Parenthood DLC throughOrigin, try using the Origin website instead. If this too doesn’t work, you need to contact EA Help.

Empty cribs randomly appear in children’s bedrooms

This started happening with the family I am playing with the new Parenthood pack – empty cribs keep randomly appearing in the children’s bedroom. There are no babies (there are twin toddlers), and the mom Sim is not pregnant. Once there were even two cribs stacked on top of each other.

The player who first reported this problem also confirmed that the empty cribs disappeared once the toddler became a child.

Toddler have max qualities

One of the twins somehow has max good manners and max bad conflict resolution (again, this is a toddler) even though the parents haven’t worked with him near enough for this. This same Sim also keeps resetting like he’s fresh out of the crib and the aging up box appears every time that happens.

While this is not a game-breaking bug, toddlers should not possess these characteristics until they have become children and only after players have worked to develop such skills.

Babies remain completely still

Since installing Parenthood, my sim’s baby (born before the upgrade) doesn’t seem to sleep, dirty a diaper or eat. For a time, I actually thought it was dead (unchanging dark background in the thumbnail) but now, it seems to be stuck on green.

Character values level up erratically 

So I’ve been having an issue with my character values. For some reason, they are acting weird because either I can’t see them properly (missing Icons) or they are either leveling up negatively or positively but it’s a little erratic. […] I just wanted to see if anyone else was having this issue

These are the most common The Sims 4 issues reported by players after they installed the Parenthood DLC. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find any workarounds to fix these bugs. If, by any chance, you’ve come across various solutions to fix The Sims 4: Parenthood DLC bugs, feel free to list the troubleshooting steps in the comment section below.
