How to Have a Child in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope

In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope, you can have two children (needs confirmation). For now, they can do nothing. However, it's still unknown whether these children can eventually help us on the farm or not in the future.

Ok, no need to talk too much, here's ...

How to have a child in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope

If you want to have a child you must get married first. I assume you are already married, but if you haven't, please read How to Get Married in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope.

After that, you must make a baby crib on Doc's architect. You will need Hardwood Lumber 5x, Wool 5x, and a Silver, as well as money for 2500 G to make it.

Like most Harvest Moon games, all you need to do is just waiting until the time is right. But the question is how long it took until a baby is born and grow up?

Well, this is the timeline...

Your wife will pregnant 30 days (one season) after the wedding. So, if you married on Winter 20, Year 1, your wife will pregnant on Spring 20, year 2.

There will occur a scene where your wife is not feeling well after you call Jeanne to your house, you will know that your wife was not sick, but she was pregnant.

30 days thereafter, a scene will occur again where your wife will ask you to select the gender of your baby. You can choose a Boy or Girl.

30 days after that, your wife will give birth to her first baby, the gender depending on your preferences before.

You will also be given a formula for making baby milk and toys (Book Picture and Rattle) by Carol. Make sure to give your baby a milk and play him/her a toy every day. If not, he/she won't be growing up.

30 days after your baby was born, there will be a scene where your baby can crawl.

30 days after your baby could crawl, there will be a scene where your baby can walk.

30 days after your baby could walk, finally he/she grow up completely. In this condition, you no longer need to give him/her milk because he/she can live independently.

But, when your child grew up, he/she will be affected by a disease known as "Petrifaction" and you have to use a medicine (Petrifaction remedy) to cure him/her.

To get the medicine, you need some help from Jeanne -> Edmond -> Harvest God -> Gorgan -> Harvest Goddess -> Doc -> Harvest God.

Note: You will need 10 Hardwood lumbers, 40 Glass Materials and a Soul Gem to make the Magic Pot on Doc's Architects to contain the medicine.

After you use the medicine, your child will be better on the next day and you will earn a "Help from Above" trophy.

In total, at least you need 6 seasons (180 days) after marriage in order to have a first child. This is certainly a very long time and probably can make you tired of waiting.

How to have a second child in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope?

I am sure we can have a second child as the previous Harvest Moon series though I haven't had a second child already.

But, from my experience playing all this time, almost all of the features in the Light of Hope adapted from the Seeds of Memories and Skytree Village.

I was thinking that the Light of Hope was the Seeds of Memories. The game was not released on the PC platform with the addition of features from Skytree Village and a few new features.

Back to the topic of discussion...

To have a second child, probably in short like this...

Your wife will pregnant your second baby 30 days after your first baby growing up completely (can walk and talk).

Check the Doc's architect does he provide baby crib again or not. If available, you must buy it. While the next process is almost the same as the first child.

That's How to have a child in Harvest Moon: Light of Hope. I'll update this article if I find new information. Thanks for reading this article...

    Right, no kidding. I have a question though. How do you play with your child with the toys?

    For the rattle, you just need to interact with your child using the action button after they wake up at 7 am. Book picture could only be used once your child has fully grown up.
