Ready to embark on a special journey? Witness the growth of your very own baby in 9 Months, a new idle clicker where the miracle of life happens right before your very own eyes. You will supply a healthy amount of nutrition and cells to ensure that the baby grows into a healthy child, and you will do this by tapping to collect precious cells.
In Touch Tap Play’s 9 Months guide, we will go over the basics of the game and teach you how to grow your baby fast and efficiently. It is all about cell collection in this game, so let’s get started with our 9 Months cheats, tips, and tricks strategy guide to grow your baby fast!
The Early Stages
To start off, your baby will be nothing but a few cells. To help grow your baby, you must give it nutrition, which is the green resource listed at the top of the screen. You will automatically accumulate nutrition over time.
After you give enough nutrition to your baby, it will advance to the next stage of life. At this point, you will unlock the secondary currency: cells! Cells make up the genetic material of your baby, and you will need a lot of it to speed up the progress of your baby.
Cells accumulate automatically over time just like protein does, but you can also collect some yourself by tapping the purple cells button at the bottom right corner of the screen.
By collecting a lot of nutrition and cells, your baby can grow up quickly and healthy!

Which Upgrades to Get?
There are a total of four upgrades to purchase, and we will break them all down to you right here.
The first upgrade you will unlock is the “7% Fast Refill”. The name is unnecessarily confusing, so the most important thing to keep in mind is that this upgrade increases the amount of nutrition you generate over time.
This is the main upgrade that you will want to pour your cells into. Faster nutrition means a faster growing baby!
The second upgrade is “Increase Max Limit”. You can only hold so much nutrition at any given time, and once you hit your max nutrition will stop generating. To avoid this, check in often to use your nutrition or increase your max limit.
If you are the type of player who likes to idle and leave the game for longer periods of time, you may want to invest in this upgrade.
The third upgrade is “Cell Upgrade”, which increases the amount of cells you earn every time you tap the cell button. This does not increase your automatic cell generation rate – growing your baby does that.
If you are the type of player who likes to actively keep the game open and tap tap tap, this is the upgrade for you! You will be able to earn upgrades faster thanks to more cells.
The final upgrade is “Upgrade Offline Refill”. When the game is closed, your nutrition generation rate changes, and this upgrade determines how fast it is.
Again, if you like to idle a lot, you may want to invest more into this upgrade because you will get more nutrition over time without even having to lift a finger.
So, there you have it. Each upgrade is more tailored towards a specific kind of player. Ideally you will want to upgrade everything, but you can also choose to focus on the ones that are more helpful to you.
Claim Milestone Gems
Every time you grow your baby with nutrition, it is forming one of the important organs of the human body. When you finish completing an entire organ, the game will notify you and you will be able to collect a reward.
If you tap on the button at the top right, you can see what parts of the baby have grown in fully. To claim the rewards for the growth, you need to watch a short advertisement before you can collect the gems, but it is worth it.
Which Advertisement Boosts are Worth it?
Occasionally, as you play the game, little buttons will pop up on the right side of the screen. These buttons offer boosters that grant you a temporary buff, but you will need to watch an advertisement before you can activate them.
Which ones are worth your valuable time? We will go over them here so that you know which ones are good.
The button that has the cells and a finger in it is the Cells Auto-Clicker booster. If you watch an advertisement, the game will automatically collect cells for you for 30 seconds. This is different from the automatic generation – the game treats this as if you are actually tapping the cells button yourself.
If you pay 30 gems instead, it activates for 400 seconds. This one helps you get upgrades which can help your baby grow faster in the long run, so this booster is helpful.
The button with just a cell on it is the Extra Cells booster. This one is pretty straight forward – watch an advertisement and you get a bunch of cells at once. You can also pay the gem fee to get a ton of cells.
This one is not particularly useful as you are much better off spending gems on the things that increase the amount of cells you get rather than just getting a one-off supply of them.
The button with the baby in a clock is the Time Travel booster. This booster immediately passes a set amount of time so that you earn all of the resources in the blink of an eye.
The advertisement option fast forwards you 120 seconds, and the gem option zooms you through a whopping 1,000 seconds, and only for 15 gems! If you are in a hurry, this booster can be quite useful.
The button with the green baby icon is Free Growth Booster. This is perhaps the most helpful booster of them all, as it makes the grow button completely free for 15 or 30 seconds, depending on whether you use the advertisement option or pay 5 gems respectively.
For the duration of this booster, you can tap the grow button without having to pay the nutrition fee. You can get quite a lot of progress, and we think this is easily the best booster.
The button with the gem in it is the Free Gems Booster. Exactly what it says on the tin, this booster will get you gems. You will get one gem simply for free, but if you watch an advertisement you will get 5 gems.
Because this is one of the few boosters that has a strictly free option, you should tap on it whenever you see it pop up to at least get that free gem!
Your Baby is Born!
If you feel like progress is really slow, you are not alone – it takes a very long time to get your baby to 9 months. The game is designed to slow you down as much as possible to try to get you to spend real money.
If you do not want to pay up, the only thing we can recommend is to use as many of the free boosters as possible, including the advertisement boosts.
At nine months, your baby will finally be born! With your baby, you will have to take care of additional things now. You will have to feed your baby and make sure that you are giving them enough attention. You can even give them cute little toys to keep them happy!
At this point, you will still use nutrition to help your baby grow, so keep on upgrading your attributes. You will eventually be able to max out things like nutrition rate and max cap. Happy parenting!
