This download is a custom pose or animation. This means that you will need the Pose Player or Animation Player mod by cmomoney installed in order to use the download in your game.
This is a set that I have quite literally been intending to make for years. And after procrastinating forever, of course I ended up doing it in 8 hours when I finally got down to it. Of course. Way to go, doofus. As usual, these poses are pose-listed, and the pose tags are also included in the pose list description. Pose tags are as follows:

a_splad_sick1 -- sitting in a chair holding a child.
c_splad_sick1 -- being held.

a_splad_sick2 -- lying on a couch holding a child.
c_splad_sick2 -- being held.

a_splad_sick3 -- holding a child by the side while standing.
c_splad_sick3 -- standing.

a_splad_sick4 -- holding a child while walking.
c_splad_sick4 -- being held.

a_splad_sick5 -- taking temperature with hand.
c_splad_sick5 -- sitting on bed.

Known issues:
* These poses were designed using a male rig. You can of course use a female sim, but you may notices that the hands/arms don't line up as exactly.
* Pose 2 was designed on a full-length couch. It works on a loveseat, but you may have a bit of clipping.
* Pose 3 was designed for the child sim's hands to accommodate larger pants meshes. You may need to alt-slide the adult sim to have the hands line up more exactly, depending on the camera angle you use for your photos.
* Pose 5 was designed on a single bed. It will work fine on a double, but you will need to alt-slide the sims, or the bed.

And as always, you'll need to use "moveobjects on" to manually place the Sims in the desired position. They'll tangle up and make a mess after you cancel their poses, but this is okay! Direct them to walk away and all will be well.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
