In what's believed to be the first case of its kind, a Wanganui woman has been convicted of giving cannabis to her three month old baby through her breast milk.

She was charged with administering a class C control drug to a person under the age of 18.

The charges were laid after a police search of a house for drugs.

The woman admitted the offence in the Wanganui District Court, and has been sentenced to six months supervision.
