Hi there
I was wondering if any current or previous ex pats can help me. We ( me, husband and 15 month old) are soon to be travelling to Singapore for a wedding. We are looking for some recommendations for babysitting/nanny agencies that we can contact to provide some babysitting for us over the wedding weekend. Does anyone have any recommendations for me of companies you have used previously and rated in Sing?

Many thanks in advance!

As far as I know, A team Amahs is the only agency to hire part time help legally.
Part time and hourly babysitting really isn't the norm.
If you are staying in a hotel, ask them directly.

There's Just Us as well I think.

OP If you know the bride and groom well, they may be able to find someone from within their personal network- it's not uncommon for people to "lend" their helpers/ amahs to visiting friends of friends. Not strictly legal (as in, it violates the visa conditions of the helper) it's pretty widespread.

It I should probably your best bet so that you have the same person throughout the weekend.
