how long have you been watching this LO? if just recently started, you need to gain her trust first. just make sure you sooth her, let her know that you're there, and it's ok if she sleeps on her own, she's a big girl. I would say let her cry, but since you're not the parent and i don't know how they feel on that, that's all i really know what to tell you. also, make sure you speak with the parents on this, and see if maybe they can start helping out by having her take naps on her own at home over the weekend. if you and the parents aren't on the same page, then it will be alot harder on you. i used to watch a baby, and once i would finally get him on a schedule, he would go home for the weekend just for me to have to start all over again on monday.
