She picked up my son one day from school, watched him for an hour and half, and a few other afternoons watched him for an hour (probably 3 times total) plus she made supper one night. My husband feels I should get her something, not sure if it’s uncalled for - too much? Like we’re neighbors and that’s what we do

You could get a fruit / chocolate platter for Shabbos.
Something small showing that you appreciate that she was there for you.

Yes, chocolates or fruit are very nice. You can write "thank you so much for being there when I needed you. It's great to have friends/neighbor to count on".

I baked some nice cookies and write a card for my fiends and neighbors who helped me post surgery.

Send her a cheesecake for Shavuos with a nice note.

I'd feel stupid if my neighbors sent me something for watching their child for an hour for 3 afternoons..... that's what neighbors do. Bh us neighbors are always ready to help each other's out. I'd feel really stupid when receiving a gift for such a minor thing.
But if you feel like you should send something, I'd give something small like a pastry with an iced coffee.
