Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Unless your child custody/visitation order from the court says otherwise or says that a parent has a "right of first refusal" when a parent has physical custody of a child, the parent with physical custody may choose whom to leave the child with. When a parent has physical custody of the child either on their visitation time or as primary physical custodian they are allowed to make decisions for the child's care unless the visitation order says otherwise.
So if the parent has a child during visitation and they need someone to look after the child, it is generally up to that parent to select who they leave the child with absent a first refusal or some other clause in the court order.
