Check the first post of this thread. There's a button labeled Me Too (unless you're logged in with another language that it would be the same translated to your language)

 

The number of me toos on a thread are an important indication for QA to see how widespread it is.

I just had this happen with mine. I couldn't find her and a baby was crying for ages. I sent dad to feed her but she abruptly vanished from the bassinet! 😳

She eventually reappeared but frozen, unmoving even though she now has sleep Z's. I had him bounce her and she was fine after that but it keeps happening with each baby (triplets) and they reappear frozen until the parents interact with them.

 

It's very creepy... 🤪

I'm having the same issue now (twice in a row).

The maid is visible but the au pair isn't. She talks to the kids, but I had hired her because she needed to bathe them.. but she didn't nor could I have the kids tell her that.

 

One time she didn't appear at all, kid went to day care instead, and when the parents came back, au pair showed up... 

 

I'll try and send my save file to the link mentioned earlier too.

When my sim comes home and dismisses the nanny, they leave and disappear from the lot. Almost immediately I will get another notification that the nanny is here (did not request it). I can't see them at all, but my sims get queue actions to interact with the nanny autonomously, but it doesn't appear that anything actually happens.

 

If I go to the world screen and back to the house I can see the nanny again.

 

The home is a Tiny Living Lot - Microhome, on the Windenburg Island.  Two sims in household. One mother and toddler.

Hey! I'm finding this happening sometimes like when I'm about to go to work and my sim is late for work due to some kind of interaction thats interrupting him going to work, the game will bug out and ask me to miss work just after i have called a nanny! But then I click on no and my sim goes to work then the game acts like if the nanny has come over but I don't see her/him but there is food there, (nanny's always make food and never eat it! Also luckily my toddler is just sleeping the whole day!) But yeah we still have to end up paying the nanny and can't dismiss them when our sims come home! I found out however, if you enter cheat, CAS mode then go back to the game, the nanny does reappear! So there is some kind of a fix to this!

Invisable nannies

★ Apprentice

After the last update, when the nanny's shift ends and she is rehired, when she comes back she is invisible.  Some times I can see what she does but not her.  Like the toddler will jump into the highchair and suddenly have food or food will be prepared but no one can be seen doing it.  Most of the time going back to the map and reentering the household will bring her back but not all the time.

 

It's really strange to say the least...
