 Take him back to court, to modify the court order.  Inform teh Judge you are looking for work.

I then call my mom or a friend and ask if my dd can stay with them. Do you have any friends or family nearby that would help you out?

Hmm day care? Friend or family member? My ex always cancels, now if he doesn't pick up my son early on Saturday he's not picking him up Sunday either.

At least it's better than him trying to get full custody, or that other nonsense he was pulling a few weeks ago.  :)  I would have another sitter lined up for if he backs out. 

I don't have any help, so I'm pretty much home all the time, BUT I do have a very trusted friend/sitter who I know I can always call at the last minute to help if I had an emergency.  You definitely need someone else to help your daughter if the father is unreliable.

You should always have a backup or emergency sitter anyway. Ask a friend or family if they could keep the baby when he does that.

 Is he really working, or just making excuses?  I would document that all for if you ever end up in court.
