Baby is fast for its size, so you must take care not to get caught by it, as it swallows you whole killing you instantly if it reaches you. Most importantly, do not panic – you can easily maneuver around it if you keep your wits about you.

How to Beat the Giant Baby

Get to the Breaker Box

Resident Evil Village Relief of a Child Location
As mentioned above, after getting the Breaker Box Key from the bottom of the well and making it back to the hallway, Baby will start chasing you. Go back through the Medicine Room and continue to the crawl space where you got the Scissors earlier. Continue through the Study to the Breaker Box and use the Breaker Box Key to obtain the Relief of a Child.

Get to the Bedroom

After getting the Relief of a Child go back through the Study and into the crawl space. Be careful, if you are too quick Baby might be right in front of the crawl space's exit. Wait until Baby leaves and continue to the door with a depression in it. Place the Relief of a Child in it to access the Bedroom. You will find the Fuse in the back and the lights will go out.

Get Back to the Breaker Box

Resident Evil Village Hide Under the Bed
After you have the Fuse, exit the Bedroom. Once you approach the stairs, Baby will block your path, forcing you to run back to the Bedroom. Hide under the bed and wait for Baby to pass you. As soon as it has passed, sprint for the Breaker Box. The path to the crawl space is now blocked by bookshelves, so you must go through the Medicine Room and then continue down the hallway. Place the Fuse in the Breaker Box. Baby will now be close behind you, so run into the study. Circle around the desk, and when Baby is positioned just past the desk, run to activate the elevator to escape. Be sure to press the up button in the elevator as well.

Use Obstacles

To keep yourself apart from Baby, use whatever obstacle you can to act as a barrier between the two of you. The examination table where you found the mannequin of Mia is perfect for this role, as you can circle it until you can break into a run into the corridor leading to the Breaker Box.

Hide In Tall Closets

Baby - Hide in Tall Cabinets.png

When you're backed into a corner with Baby close by, search for tall closets you can enter and hide in, or hide under the bed in the bedroom. The monster will not be able to find you as long as it doesn't see you enter, so wait until it passes right in front of you, then run for the Breaker Box!

Recommended Weapons

Weapons are unavailable for this "fight", as you mostly just run away from Baby while trying to get to the Breaker Box.

running is also a way to fight. not just by killing

it isn't really a boss fight since you have no way to kill it.
