The boy's mum, Cristina Ceril, 33, installed the secret camera at her home in Parana, Argentina, after discovering a series of bruises on her child.
Neighbours had also reported hearing the boy and his 10-year-old sibling screaming and in tears when they were alone with the nanny.
Mrs Ceril linked the camera to her smartphone and gave the footage to police.
Police and prosecutors said they will use the video as part of their case after Mantaras was charged with criminal assault and child abuse.
Mrs Ceril said: "We would sometimes hear her with our son crying in the morning.

Concerns: The footage also appears to show the nanny eating the child's food
"It now makes my blood run cold to think what she might have been doing.
"We always thought she was a bit lazy around the house but we never imagined for a second that she was violent too.
"She actually stole my son's food and then hit him for saying he was hungry. She is sick."
