Breeding villagers in Minecraft was a tad easier in past versions of the game, but today, only a few more steps are needed to give yourself a squad of the helpful traders. Here’s how to breed villagers in Minecraft Version 1.19.
Breeding villagers is an odd thing to think about doing. Villagers are people and using the word breeding with them makes it seem like they’re animals.
How to Breed Villagers in Minecraft Version 1.19
In the instance of Minecraft, they kind of are though. The more Villagers your village has, the more trades opened up meaning the more your village, farm, town or even city, prospers.
Before diving into how to make Villagers do their thing to create a baby, let’s talk about Minecraft Version 1.19.
What Minecraft Version 1.19 Is
If you don’t keep up with Minecraft, it’s important to know that the game receives large updates, as well as smaller interstitial updates in between those larger ones.
These updates add new content to the game, fix bugs and generally make the game a better experience. The latest and largest update to Minecraft was Version 1.19, which was released on June 7 of this year.
Version 1.19, otherwise known as ‘The Wild’ update, introduced the Deep Dark and Mangrove Swamp biomes, mobs like Wardens, Frogs and Allays, as well as new materials like Reinforced Deepslate. It even added Ancient Cities found in the Deep Dark biome which are well worth seeking out.
Who Villagers Are
Villagers are just that — NPC mobs that live in small and quaint villages. They have lives, families, jobs, trades and a system completely separate from you, the player, although you can interact with them and affect how they work in the game.
How to Breed Villagers
To breed Villagers in Minecraft Version 1.19, you first need to find a village or build one and have three bread, 12 carrots, or 12 potatoes.
Villages are never too far away so with enough exploration, you’ll come across one. You can also build one by building a few buildings close to each other.
With buildings created, ensure that there is at least one door on each building so Villagers can walk in. Inside of your buildings, you need to have three beds. One for each of the Villagers you will breed and a third bed for the baby that will be born.
With the beds and building prepared, you need to make them willing to breed, which oddly enough requires a strange food requirement.
To breed, Minecraft Villagers must have three bread, 12 carrots, 12 beetroots or 12 potatoes in their inventory.
Lure two Villagers who meet this food requirement into one of the buildings with three beds and exit the building. In roughly 20 minutes, you should find that your Villagers have created a baby.
In another 20 minutes, that baby will grow into a standard Villager.
How to Assign Baby Villagers to a Job
Once a baby Villager has grown into an adult, if there’s a job block nearby, it’ll automatically claim it and become that profession.

It’s worth noting that if your baby Villager has green clothing, it’s deemed a Nitwit and cannot claim any job.
