I babysat my friend's dd who was 9 months old at the time and I knew she would let her dd cry herself to sleep so when she asked me to watch her I told her, "just so you know, we have a rule in this house that we don't let babies cry- I just can't do it." And she was fine with that. It was only for one day, though. I don't know if she would have felt differently if I was watching her dd on a regular basis but I would still tell her that I can't let babies cry.
