I say it's not your responsibility. I think you are being very sweet to want to help her out and there is nothing wrong with that. There is however something wrong with her thinking it's okay to just string you along and think you will be there at her beck and call. I think before you stop helping completely, you need to talk to her face to face and let her know how it is going to be. If she doesn't call you, she pays anyway. If it happens again you will no longer be able to take care of her child, you have a life too and it does not revolve around her schedule. Good luck.
