2.0 English FAQ - Howto

Welcome to the new Baby Tatu 2.0 Have in mind that 2.x is and upgrade of the 1.x series and even if it maintains the user experience and a lot of its features, is a full new baby.

The very important things to keep in mind: 
On your first rez you will get the product registration key, don´t store the baby till you get it and save the key on a notecard so you can remember it. In the hard case that you lose the baby or it gets broken, you can recover the baby at the clinic with that key. Ask a nurse or clerk for help and they will walk you trought.
Add your partner, friends, etc. on the family list before you transfer the baby to them. If you fail to do so the baby will think it has been stolen and you will have to use the recovery key to get him back.
Only the avatar who registered the baby can reclaim it, so adoptions or baby resells aren’t anymore possible. Or at least we can´t support them if SL decides to chew them and spit them in a million prims.

Baby´s Name 
To name your baby Rez your baby on the ground, go to edit, new name and give him a new name.

Your babys needs 
Baby needs are represented by particle symbols on top of his head and baby noises which are pretty self explanatory.
A feeding bottle means your baby is hungry
A spiral when he is unclean and needs a bath or diaper change
An unhappy smile shows he is bored
Zzz when he is sleeping
Hearts will show when he is feeling fun an loved or on level ups
A red cross appears when your baby's health is more than half down
An finally a red cross with a little skull when your baby's health bar reaches cero and becomes sick beyond normal care
This particles as the rest of your baby can be very sensible to server lag and can even don’t show up by a particle sim limit listen to your baby or changing his speed to a lower one or check the status directly on the alife menu.

The Menu 
Touch the baby and a menu will pop up

Actions Menu 
In this menu you can find all kind of interactions with your baby.
Put diaper / Take diaper – You’ll need to take your baby’s diaper first if you want to clean him. Its also useful if you want to try different clothes combinations with or without an on top diaper.
Wakeup – Morning call for your baby if he is asleep
Sleep – Make your baby go to sleep regardless his tiredness
Breastfeed – Just one of the ways you can feed your baby, but the most natural one. This option will disappear when your baby is old enough
Burp – Just some patting on baby’s back to make him feel better after a big meal
Play – Have fun with your baby and your baby will have fun with you
Hold – Holding your baby next to your warm heart feels comforting
Rock – Rocking your baby rocks!
Shoulder – Take the baby for a walk over your shoulder.
All these actions affect your baby’s behavior in some way, there is no manual for these and is up to you as fathers to figure it out.

Is in this menu where you can dress or undress your baby Also you can find a neko ear and tail, neko ears can be use with the hat or by acquiring a different texture, as a full neko baby. Different clothes of different baby outfits can be combine to create your own baby style. To hide the baby´s diaper just take it away, there isn´t a button to hide it.

The heart and brain of your baby, where all the magic happens.

Heal – For healing your baby you will need to rez a medic kit near him and use this function, if your baby is sick enough a baby vaccine will be applied.

Speed – If you feel your baby too demanding, you are in a lagged server or you will leave him rez on his bed for hours, using an internal cycles lower speed could be the best solution. If you by the other hand wants a more challenging baby with the chance of making faster XP, ”Psico Mom!” is your best choice. And of course, normal will return the cycles to their normal speed. Have in mind that baby cycles aren’t regular, so it will be impossible to guess when the next one will be.

Personality – Your baby’s self stats, these are your baby’s personality. To have high some is better than others and will be only modified when you get enough’s XP. Stats go from 0 to 100, but no baby can be born with too high or too low stats. It’s your long work what will determine this.

Status – Here is the most direct way to check what is wrong with your baby showing values of its current status. Specially useful on lagged sims.*

XP – Experience point can be worn on every cicle and this function will show you how much points are missing for a power up of that particular stat. Every next power up will be difficult and more XP needed.

Powering lower stats is way easy than the higher ones and only with a lot of dedicated motherhood you can reach the maximum 100 stats. Depositions and Hunger are inverse variables and you would normally wont desire high values on those.

NEW on 2.X: Your baby´s growth doesn’t depend anymore on the baby´s stats but on the growth stage. Stats now can go up and down but your baby´s size will always depend on his growth.

Edit Menu 
Update – Once you get your update disc, rez it near the baby and use this function to update its features. Scripts will be updated if needed and new features added when available.

New Clothes / New Skin – If you bought new baby’s clothes or skin first touch this button and your baby will be ready for accepting the new clothes.

Umbilical cord –By default your baby will show an umbilical cord the first week of life then it will fall off and a little black button will appear in his belly which will disappear by the 2nd week of his birth. If by any reason you find this too disgusting or want to put it back, you can override it from here.

Male / Female – Choose your baby’s sex. This will change baby’s umbilical cord clip and pacifier colour, show baby’s genitalia and ear piercing.

Name – Push this button and write your baby’s name on open channel. Baby’s name will appear on top of his head.If you do this while the baby is on the ground the objects name will also be changed.

AO – An animation override has been added. It adds some walk, and stand animations. You can choose between 2 different walk animations (Tired and female walk) or be completely shutdown.

The feeding bottle 
Just wear it and your baby will be feed. Watch out, he can eat more that he can take.

Diaper changing 
Rez the diaper box, take the old dirty diaper, then touch the diaper box. Is that simple

Your baby’s health 
Always take a good look to your baby’s status and messages. High values on the stats will heal the baby and lower ones could hurt him in unknown ways. Don’t leave the baby alone unattended as it will eventually get sick, if you want to leave him rez on a cradle get one with hibernation mode. Your baby is a virtual living being and if you forget him for days without giving him any attention could result in his sickness. Take him once every 5 days so he doesn’t get sick of loneliness. Leaving the baby with a babysitter or a family friend could be a good precaution if you are planning to leave Second Life for a week or more.

How does the baby learn to crawl and advance in growth stages? This is done when your baby meets certain stat growths each week. No one on the staff can tell you what those numbers are, as we have no idea either. All we can say is be a great parent. Meet your baby's needs needs and as the scores grow so will your baby. If that week your baby does not meet those numbers don't get discouraged just keep up the good work and you will advance in time.

On stage 3 the baby will be able to sit by itself
On stage 4 it will learn to crawl
On Stage 7 he will learn to walk

Once you reach crawling stage, every time you need to pick up your baby from the ground first open the baby´s menu and touch the new “Take to inventory” button. Nothing bad can happen if you fail to do so, but some prims can be shown on an incorrect size if you wear him.


  1. my baby personality is not saving?

  2. I purchased a baby and tried to apply the skin, had an issue and in the end needed to recover my baby. I used my key at the machine and it wouldnt work. I called a manager who then tried to help me as well to no end. The machine would not work. The manager told me to purchase another baby and she would see to it that you gave me a refund of the first baby. I have sent you two note cards and have yet to hear one word form you either way. If I do not hear form you within the week. I will be forced to report you to linden labs.

  7. The HUD is copy/no transfer so is easy to take anotherone from the box

  8. Anyone else seeing severe problems with having two babies in the same Sim? Version 2.101, the latest far as I know.

    Put one down in one bed, the other one also shows up. Same with baths. Hibernate one, and guess what? The stats between the two are totally fouled up. One flat disappeared this morning. My partner went and got a Recovered one. Three times, as it turned out. Finally got one to stay, just kept getting hungrier and tireder whatever we did.

    She loved this idea, and now y'all are making her unhappy. Which is making me unhappy. It is a good thing you are unlikely to meet me in RL.

  9. hmmm... baby is happy, all bars are filled, he is perfectly healthy, but the humor decreases and the charisma doesnt change at all
    what might I do wrong?

  10. I must just have a sickly baby. His hunger, fun, and tiredness are all at 100. His desposition is at 34...yet his health is at 58. This is my first day having him and he was already sick earlier. Idk what else to do.

  11. I was wondering if there is a way to reset the baby back to just born.... I have a new partner, and we are going to be having a lil one, so I brought my tatu baby out, but he is like the size of a 6 month old or older.. Can someone let me know if it can be reset back to new born

  12. Hi Cat
    You can do that with a red med kit
