How to summon a baby villager (villager child)

Like most passive mobs in Minecraft, you can summon a villager child by setting the Age tag to a negative number (under the "Additional" tab).

/summon minecraft:villager ~ ~ ~ {Age:-1200} (Grows up in 60 seconds)
/summon minecraft:villager ~ ~ ~ {Age:-6000} (Grows up in 5 minutes)

Villager trades

Building trade data is complicated and takes some time. Each trade needs at least one buy item and one sell item. You can add nbt tag data for named and enchanted items (other tags may work too). Summon generally creates a villager in a blank state, so it's best to set all the options that you would like. Remember long commands need to into command block to get around the chat limit.

In this example you can buy a iron sword from the villager

/summon minecraft:villager ~ ~ ~ {VillagerData:{type:plains,profession:farmer,level:2},Offers:{Recipes:[{buy:{id:emerald,Count:1},sell:{id:iron_sword,Count:1}}]}}

In this example you can buy a named iron sword from the villager

/summon minecraft:villager ~ ~ ~ {VillagerData:{type:plains,profession:farmer,level:2},Offers:{Recipes:[{buy:{id:emerald,Count:1},sell:{id:iron_sword,Count:1,tag:{display:{Name:"[{\"text\":\"Pointy\",\"italic\":false}]"}}}}]}}

In this example you can buy an enchanted named iron sword from the a villager

/summon minecraft:villager ~ ~ ~ {VillagerData:{type:plains,profession:farmer,level:2},Offers:{Recipes:[{buy:{id:emerald,Count:1},sell:{id:iron_sword,Count:1,tag:{display:{Name:"[{\"text\":\"Pointy\",\"italic\":false}]"},Enchantments:[{id:sharpness,lvl:3}]}}}]}}
