This option attempts to fix the [http://simswiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Pregnancy#Rolling_the_Pacifier_and_Firstborn_Syndrome first-born effect], in which Sims born in-game are given identical personalities and appearances. This happens if a Sim is born, then the game is saved and exited, and in the next play session, another baby is born and has the same or similar personality and/or appearance as the first. This is not a bug, but a "coding laziness" on the developer's end. This issue can be resolved by going into [[Create a Sim]] and clicking on the pacifier icon several times to roll through the combinations and randomize the personality generator. This option basically does the same thing, except it can be used on lots without the hassle of going to CAS. Use before a pregnancy comes to term.

'''Note''': This option will quit your lot without saving, in order to avoid committing to the pile of NPCs it generates.<ref>http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/smf/index.php/topic,72.msg590592.html#msg590592</ref> Save before using this option.

'''Another note''': You may still experience the first-born effect if you use this option immediately after booting up the game, as the option will always create (and immediately delete) thirteen Sims,<ref>https://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=5094790#post5094790</ref> due to the Batbox itself using another randomizer in the game that has the same problem. The solution, therefore, is to use this option or go into CAS and roll the pacifier a random number of times yourself.<ref>https://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=5095122#post5095122</ref> This should only concern you if you are paranoid of siblings looking and acting identical to each other and want a truly diverse and random selection.
