Bristol Palin has been told to bend a little by the judge handling her custody arrangement with ex-fiancee Dakota Meyer. In a ruling this week, a judge awarded joint physical and legal custody to Bristol Palin and Dakota Meyer.

Bristol Palin argued prior to the judge's ruling that because she still nursed daughter Sailor Grace, that Dakota Meyer couldn't have overnight visitation with the baby when he visited her in Alaska.

The judge ruled that while the baby should remain in Alaska with Bristol Palin, Dakota Meyer may visit her twice a month for four days at a time. He ruled the child will spend overnights with her father during those visits.

"Mother is to provide father with an adequate supply of milk or formula for overnight visitation," the judge ruled.

According to text messages obtained by The Daily Mail, Bristol Palin told Dakota Meyer recently that she only breast feeds the baby at night.

Another text message said Bristol Palin "didn't think about [Sailor] when she called off the wedding, and I didn't think about her when I left [for Alaska]."

Court documents the Daily Mail obtained state, "Her decision to move back to Alaska, a decision in which Mr. Meyer had no say, is why there is a need for something other than a traditional visitation schedule. She must now accommodate visitation between Mr. Meyer and Sailor and the fact that the visitation may inconvenience her or occur on weekends is simply a direct consequence of her own decisions."

Will Bristol Palin bend a bit so Dakota Meyer can spend quality time with their daughter? Will mom Sarah Palin get in on these proceedings and push for the ruling to be changed?

Does it sound at all to you like Bristol Palin might have some regrets over leaving Dakota Meyer?
