When can Sims take Family Leave?

During the first two trimesters, your pregnant Sim still needs to go to work. Family leave is not yet available.Family Leave is available starting with the third trimester.

As soon as this option is available, you will see a notification informing you that your pregnant Sim can now take Family Leave.

Sims get paid for all the days spent on Family Leave. The good news is that both the parents can take Family Leave days before and after the baby is born.

However, this is optional, you don’t have to take it immediately. But it’s a good idea to use this option so that your Sim can help his/her partner through the infant stage.

How to ask for Family Leave?

The steps to follow to take Family Leave are similar to those you need to follow for vacation days. Take the phone, go to Household and select the option Family Leave.

The catch is you have to call in for Family Leave every day you want to use it, otherwise your Sim will suddenly leave and go to work the next day.

If this happens, a nanny will show up to take care of the baby if there are no adults around. However, nannies are not always the best solution. The most efficient method is for the parents to spend a few days with the baby to build a strong bond. To simplify things up, you can then age the baby to toddler.
