[OPEN] Toddlers can't be put to bed/read to sleep if bed is against wall

[ Edited ]
★★ Apprentice

Product: The Sims 4
Platform:Mac
Which language are you playing the game in? English
How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
What is your current game version number? 1.54.120.1220
What expansions, game packs, and stuff packs do you have installed? All except for Moschino Stuff.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Put a toddler bed sideways against a wall and try to get an adult to put a toddler to bed or read them to sleep.
What happens when the bug occurs? I couldn’t get my sims to put their tot to bed/read them to sleep if said bed was placed sideways against the wall; the adult sim waves their hands over their head with a route fail thought bubble.
What do you expect to see? An adult sim successfully putting a toddler to bed or reading them to sleep if the bed is placed sideways against a wall.
Have you installed any customization with the game, e.g. Custom Content or Mods? Not now. I've removed them.
Did this issue appear after a specific patch or change you made to your system? Neutral/Not Sure 

I tried this in several locations and with different combinations of sims. I had to pull the bed out half a square from the wall to get the interaction to work. Placing the head or foot of the bed against the wall works fine as well. The bed is the 'Classic Toddler Bed'.

My current save is a household with 4 kids, one of them being a toddler, and I have had the problem with all 4 of them.

i have another save with only 1 toddler, and the same problem.

EA Sims Team

Sul Sul, @marianlarsen!!!

 

First of all, thanks for taking the time to raise this issue to our team! We appreciate your help a lot. High five

 

If you don't mind, can you take a look at this report about adults not being able to bring their toddlers to bed, as it sounds pretty similar to what you described in your report. If you find the time, it would also be awesome if you could test it the issue persists when you follow the same workaround of moving the toddler bed a bit. If you then feel like the report is about the same issue, you can hit the [Me Too] button on the report and let us know so we can merge your report with the already existing one. Standard smile

 

Thanks again and Happy Simming! Party hat

I've found that, at least in my current household, it works if you have the adult pick the toddler up first and then have them try to put the toddler to bed or read them to sleep. But if you don't have them pick the toddler up before selecting those actions, they get the routing failure thought bubble.

I had this same problem of parents not being able to read the toddler to sleep when I was playing today.

@SimGuruKuxiku Sorry it took so long to answear.

I moved the toddlerbed a half square from the wall, and I can now put the toddler in bed by clicking on the bed, both «put to bed» and «read to sleep» seems to work after I moved the bed.

But I want to be able to read the toddler to sleep, even when the bed is placed right next to the wall, like before.

I'm having this issue also, sometimes a parent sim will put their toddler to bed, but most of the time they come across the same routing issue. It's really frustrating, especially with twin toddlers.

I've noticed this too. Even though the beds can be accessible from either side, sims can't interact with the bed when one side is against a wall. The toddler can use it and go to sleep on their own, but reading to them or putting them to sleep doesn't work. The routing fails and nothing happens. I usually place toddler beds against the wall, so this is something I've run into a lot. It doesn't seem to matter what bed is placed.

Did they fix this? Lately I haven't been having this problem, I used to have it all the time. I haven't seen it in the patch notes though. Still having major issues with toddlers though, even without this bug.
