This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Four more EA hats that make sense on babies, too. This time they are converted from children's hats, except for the pixie bow which was a wish from someone.



New info on this set:
  • The knit band and pixie bow are only enabled for girls, everything else is unisex.
  • The tassles of the dragon-hat get a bit angular when the baby moves its head. There aren't enough bones in this region to achieve a smoother look, and I'm proud enough I managed the bone assignment at all
  • Channels and presets are like EA's, with the exception of the knit band. This one uses purpleplumbob's edited channels from her toddler-conversion, to add another channel to the flowers.

Polygon Counts:
knitband: 1400
pixiebow: 780
beanie: 600
dragon: 1376

Additional Credits:
As always: Thank You to the creators of s3pe, s3oc, s3rc, tsrw and the autors of tutorials, the wonderful people who make me smile with writing me nice things, and QuizicalGin who unwrapped the babies.
EA of course for meshes and textures.
Special Thanks to purpleplumbobs for giving me permission to use the improved channels. And I apologize for misspelling your name in my previous upload!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

omg!!! I nearly lost it when i seen the pixie bow! I can't begin to tell you how many times I thought of how adorable it would look on the sim baby girls. But to also see the monster hat is just as amazing, I would have never ever thought of it for babies. Thank you sooo much for these hats!

Hm, this would be just hair then Currently the only baby hair available is Quizicalgin's. The problem here is that I can't mesh organic forms myself, so I'd need something to convert; and there aren't so many hairstyles that would suit babies.

Hi! These are really nice hats, I love it!
I have just one question: how did you change the baby cloth? I mean, he/she has legs and I wanted to change that, because that blanket annoys me D:
Thank you!

First you have to download one (or more ) baby outfits with legs. Here is a good finds blog to start. Then you need Nraas Master Controller, to change the baby into the new outfit. QuizicalGin, the genius inventor of the unwrapped baby, has made a video tutorial on how to do this (although she claims to be not so friendly in it).
