I know this is an old issue but I'm experiencing the same issue. Even when the toddler gets home their needs aren't being met. I have one of the parents as a doctor and I feel like I cannot go with her to work out of fear of losing my Toddler. His needs are never met while I'm gone with her even with his father doesn't work that day and is home.

This has happened to be a lot recently.
1. I have had a toddler home sleeping with one parent, the other parent was in the city. I watched their needs go from mid to high green to bottom red in just a few game hours.

2. I sent dad to Selvadorada, leaving toddler home with mom. Dad was gone 24 hours and had to leave his vacation early because all needs were bottomed out except hunger. When he came home, not only was the toddler on the verge of being removed from the home, mom's needs were tanked - bladder, energy, and hunger were bottom red.

At this point, I can't let the toddlers go outside of my control. Daycare or leaving them at home, because they are not being care for, and other sims are not caring for themselves either. This is since Get Famous was released.

I've gotten to the point that I age up babies quickly and cheat toddler needs, since when I send them to daycare, even if they are in the green, they come home with needs in the red. I installed the parenting pack and the toddlers get skill increases in daycare, but thier needs are always tanked

I, too, just yesterday fell victim to this unreasonable system. I never used to cheat my toddler's needs, however, I've got an active celebrity. Mind you, he's the uncle and not the caretaker of his twin toddler nephews and their younger toddler sister. Recently, the parents had their fourth child, still an infant. Since the infants are basically objects, we can't cheat up their needs. But, I've learned to better ensure the care of my toddlers to cheat their needs all of the way up and the disable needs decay for the duration of the concert. Can't do that with the infant.

 

What happened to me yesterday, was, despite the mother changing the infant's diaper and feeding him prior to leaving for the uncle's concert, the child was in obvious distress upon return from Daycare. The uncle couldn't even get up the stairs fast enough to care for the baby when I got the pop-up that due to negligence, the infant was being whisked away. And that perhaps my Sims should consider getting a Gold fish, instead of trying for another baby. Angry That fast, the baby was gone in a * of smoke.

 

This is unacceptable. Either change the status of the infants to actual Sims, or FIX the DAYCARE and/or Nannies. Nannies are almost useless. Just so you'll know, I exited the game WITHOUT saving.

 

I'm very vexed by this problem. I can't even add a Sim to the household that's playable to care for the wee ones while the active Sim goes off, as there is no option to select for the Adult Sim left behind to care for them. Please, fix that, too.

Toddler's needs are not being met when they are sent to daycare. Babies come home irate.
