If you don't mind mods, LittleMsSam has added a fix for this to her Random Bug Fixes (search for it online).
No one should have to use 3rd party mods to have basic gameplay work.
My game has just started doing this, it wasn't doing this when I was first playing (played for around 4 hours) but since I have had two more babies (one adult and two toddlers also in the house) all interactions are dropping. At first it was when I was trying to get them to eat, and now they cancel every single action and won't do anything. It isn't mods, and it was absolutely fine for hours, but now I can't do anything, please help! I have tried to repair the game, deleted cache and now I am not sure what to do.

toddler having issues
I feel like we are all having the same issue but has EA even responded? I mean clearly this can't go on for too long as many of us have toddlers in our lots. Will someone think of the toddlers?
@Sherryist : Here's a Tweet from SimGuruNick I found earlier this morning: https://twitter.com/SimGuruNick/status/1144400003927949312
They're probably swamped due to the sheer amount of bugs that have cropped up recently with the patch and/or *Island Living*. ^_^;
I just started the 100 baby challenge and lost a kid!!! This is the most annoying glitch. So glad I’m not the only one. It needs to be fixed soon! I’m on vacation and I want to play but can’t with this happening.
