Recently began to play Sims 3 again and noticed the lack of care the babysitter has with the kids. Plus, the mods from that related to babysitting are outdated so I decided to make my own. This is my first mod ever so please bear with me.

What it does
- Increases the minimum time a Babysitter stays from 10hrs to 15hrs
- Makes the service recurrent
- Increases time Babysitter socializes with baby
- Cost can be either $50 or $75 (depending which flavor you download)
- Adults or Teenagers can now take care of the children

There are four different downloads, but two different flavors. I realized that many other mods edit the ServiceNPCSpecifications _XML file.

Flavor 1
- Cost of babysitting can be either $50 or $75
- Adults take care of the children
- Edits the ServiceNPCSpecifications _XML file

Flavor 2
- Cost of babysitting can be either $50 or $75
- Teenagers take care of the children
- Does not edit the ServiceNPCSpecifications _XML file

If you have a mod installed that modifies the Babysitting and/or ServiceNPCSpecifications _XML files, please do not install this mod.
1. Download either [nnediz] babysitting Mod - $50 or [nnediz] Babysitting Mod - $75
2. Copy .package file to My Documents > Electronic Arts > The Sims 3 > Mods > Packages
3. Enjoy

- To cancel the babysitting service, you must use a phone. Firing the babysitter by speaking to them will not end the service. It will just fire that specific babysitter for the day and the next one will come right after.
- For some strange reason, if you have your babysitting service turned on before you place this mod in your game, the babysitter will not leave even if you try to fire him/her from the phone. The best way to avoid this issue is to take the mod out of your game, cancel the babysitting service, and place the mod back into your game. Voila!

- ServiceNPCSpecifications _XML
- Babysitting _XML

Compatible with versions 1.66/.167. I only have base game installed so I am not so sure if it works with the other expansion packs, but I would see why not. Please let me know if otherwise. If you have any questions or want a specific modification, let me know.
