The Cheat Way

This is the quickest and easiest way to change your gender in the Sims. This can only be done after the baby is born.

  • Open the cheat console using Ctrl + Shift + C
  • Type in cheat testingcheats true
  • Type in another cheat cas.fulleditmode
  • Shift + click on the Sim
  • Select “Modify in CAS”
  • Change the gender

The (Other) Way

Yes, you can influence which gender child gets born by doing the following. But it’s still a bit of a crap shoot.

  • To have a boy listen to alternative music and eat carrots
  • To have a girl, eat strawberries and listen to pop music

Again, that does not ensure you will get the desired gender, but it definitely helps. If only real life were so easy. And stay tuned in here for all your Sims 4 needs.
