Over the last few weeks, Bristol Palin has been fighting for primary interim physical custody of daughter Sailor Grace and that her former fiance Dakota Meyer only be allowed ‘reasonable’ visitation and no overnight visits. Unfortunately for Bristol, however, a judge gave her some very bad news this week.
According to Daily Mail, Alaska Judge Herman G. Walker Jr. has awarded Bristol and Dakota joint legal and physical custody of Sailor. The judge decided that it is in the baby’s best interest for Sailor to stay in Alaska for now, but he ruled that Dakota can make the 3,600 mile trip from his home in Kentucky for four consecutive days each time.
Bristol wanted all his visits to be supervised by her so that she could provide breastmilk, but the judge has instead demanded that she instead hand over her pre-pumped breastmilk to Dakota when he arrives to pick up the baby.
“The mother objects to overnight visitation because the child is currently breastfeeding nightly,” said the Judge. “However the court finds it in the best interests of the child that overnight visitation [with the father] occur. Mother is to provide father with an adequate supply of milk or formula for overnight visitation.”
Dakota’s visits will begin this month, and his overnight visits are set to begin in May.
