Is employer being unreasonable, holding meeting on my day off? Childcare issues

I went back to work from mat leave at the beginning of Sept. I work a job share, I do Mon/Tues, other lady does Wed/Thur and business is closed Friday. I have an 8 month old baby so care for him when I am not working, my job share does self employed work when she is not working for our employer. The office is in the next city over from where I live, its 30 mins drive and 10 mins park and ride and quite an expensive city to commute to (let alone park in!)
Employer has suggested a meeting with both employees to discuss our job share, how its working out and other work related stuff. She's suggested a Friday. I replied that Friday is no good for me due to childcare issues. She's now suggested Wednesday - same issue I suggested I could bring baby along but she was not keen on this idea. My job share is also furious because she has work commitments on her 'other days' away from our office.
Is employer being unreasonable?

A month into the job share and there are already issues. I imagine the outcome could well be the job share isn't working.

Alternate the meetings, so each time it's on one of her days or one of yours. But tone completely honest, in this modern age where people deal with clients in different time zones, surely a Skype meeting would be more sensible. I'd be pissed off at having to come to work on my day off. What's the frequency of this meeting?
