This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
Before you download this pose set, go get the latest Pose Player, by cmomoney. You MUST have the Pose Player from 8/22/2013 in your game to use infant poses. If you don't get the newest Pose Player, the baby's poses WON'T work, and when you post a sad post asking me why they don't work, I will sheepishly shrug and start humming out-of-key and not actually answer your question. So please just get it, and save us both some time!

*compatible with the Pose List feature in Pose Player!*

So some of you probably recognize that male and female sim from some of my ... other ... pose sets. Rosalind has been in-game pregnant for ... oh, about a RL 18 months now. I finally sucked it up and decided to let her give birth, and in usual Simmy fashion, neither she nor her husband is capable of leaving the baby alone for any length of time. With the advent of the baby footies and the awesome baby posing functionality of the newest Pose Player, I decided to make them some poses to commemorate the birth of their first child. (Plus, anything that makes the baby lifespan worth paying attention to is a good thing, says I!)

Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_bundleofjoy1a -- holding a baby. (Use either wrapped or unwrapped.)
a_splad_bundleofjoy1b -- looking at baby.
b_splad_bundleofjoy1c -- baby pose.

a_splad_bundleofjoy2a -- holding a baby on its stomach. (Unwrapped baby suggested.)
b_splad_bundleofjoy2b -- sleeping.

a_splad_bundleofjoy3a -- playing with baby on lap. (Use either wrapped or unwrapped.)
b_splad_bundleofjoy3b -- playing.

a_splad_bundleofjoy4a -- feeding baby with bottle. (Wrapped baby suggested.)
b_splad_bundleofjoy4b -- being fed.

a_splad_bundleofjoy5a -- holding unwrapped baby over shoulder.
a_splad_bundleofjoy5b -- holding wrapped baby over shoulder.
b_splad_bundleofjoy5c -- sleeping.

The "wrapped" and "unwrapped" suggestions are just that, suggestions. The baby will still pose regardless of what the baby is wearing.

The baby's bottle is made from the in-game bottle and cloned from a base-game bracelet. It is available for men and women, teen-elder. The baby will float if you try to use these poses with a teenager, but an OMSP could probably take care of that. If you'd like to use or modify the bottle for your own poses, feel free.

Issues to note/FAQs:
Where did you get the baby's feet/clothes?
Baby's footies are available here, by Quizical Gin. Baby's skully is available here.

Can I use these with patch x.Xx?
... as far as I know, you can. Just make sure you have the very latest Pose Player (the one from August 22, 2013), or your baby won't be able to pose.

Why doesn't the baby get full from the bottle?
It's an accessory, and it won't fulfill the hunger motive. You'll need a real bottle for that.

And as always, you will have to use "moveobjects on" to place the sims in proper position. Depending on your sim's clothes/muscle tone, you may also need to use the "alt" button to slide the baby around a little. Once you cancel the pose, your baby will end up stuck under the couch or chair. Just don't forget to get them out from under there!
