A judge has ruled in the case of a woman fighting a child custody order centred around breastfeeding.

Tamara Bolan was fighting against giving weekend custody of her five month old baby to the child's father.

Last month a judge ordered that Bolan had to hand over her son and their two-year-old daughter to spend the weekend with their father.

Bolan who is from Warman, Sask., did not allow the children's dad to have them during his allotted time because she said the separation from her son would wean him off breast milk too early.

In court documents the father is said to have offered to feed the baby breast milk if Bolan provided it, but she said she could not provide as much as he required for feeding.

A judge ruled the father should be able to have access to his son, but only for three hours at a time.

Court documents state the father will be able to have the child on Friday from noon until 3 p.m. CST and Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. CST.
