My daughter is playing the Nintendo DSi game "My Baby 3 & Friends" and she is frustrated that she doesn't have points to 'buy' accessories in the game. Apparently you are supposed to be able to take pictures in the game and "send them to grandma" for points, but the "send a picture" options in the game are always grayed-out. What is the secret to get points in this game?

@Anto hey hey, this is a serious question about a video game. Are you pro enough to answer and get the bounty? – l I Feb 1 '12 at 17:04
According to an Amazon review, "the My Baby series is even better than HALO". Surely someone is capable of going into a game store, buying this game, answering the question, and then trading it back in (or not, this game is supposed to be 'great'). – Gwen Feb 1 '12 at 18:05
This is a serious question about a real game. Its true I don't hang out here, but I do get notified when someone touches this - I just noticed that this comments occurred. :) I just asked her if she figured it out, and she described the same steps shown below, so I think @Aubergine nailed it. Thanks! – Bruce Feb 9 '12 at 21:33

I imagine that in order to send a picture to grandma you first need to take one. While I couldn't find the specific procedure for My Baby 3 & Friends, I did stumble across this QA list for another game in the same series, My Baby Boy, where it says:

Q: How do I get to take a picture with the camera so I can send pictures and get stars for it?

A: You either press the L or the R button and a screen will come up. Click L or R again then the photo you've taken will show up on the top screen. On the bottom screen it will say Give to Grandma or Give to Shop. Send it to the shop for stars but send it to Grandma for Presents.

Since its a game from the same series and the mechanics seem amazingly similar, I suspect this would also work for the game in question.
