The 34-year-old from Co Cavan is charged with violently assaulting Rehma Sabir on her first birthday, at the baby's home in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Rehma later died in hospital in Boston.
Ms McCarthy Brady is due to appear before Cambridge District Court later for a pre-trial hearing.
The nanny, who has been living in the US illegally since 2002, was warned in court that she could be charged with murder, depending on what is contained in the chief medical examiner's report.
A spokesperson for the District Attorney's office has said they are still waiting on the results of the autopsy.
Brady was employed as a nanny for the last six months by entrepreneur Sameer Sabir, the baby's father and his wife Nada Siddiqui, who is originally from Karachi, Pakistan. The couple moved from London to the US.
