In a strange court battle a judge has ordered a mum to introduce formula to her baby’s diet
The Washington Post reports Amber Brown, 27, had planned on exclusively breast-feeding her 6-month-old son.
But when Ms Brown and the baby’s father, Cory Donta Lewis, split up, she said the baby couldn’t spend time with his dad because she exclusively breast fed.
She couldn’t pump enough milk to keep the baby fed during an overnight visit with his dad.
So they went to court.
The two family magistrates who heard the case in Charles County — Monise A. Brown and Mistey L. Metzgar — sided with the dad, who wants the right to feed the baby with formula when he has visitation. The mum has filed for an exception, arguing that the baby’s pediatrician says he can’t tolerate formula.
The Washington Post claims that six months later the baby is happy and well fed by both parents.
Do you agree with the judges decision?
