Breast Milk?
So, If i'm lactose intolerant and my baby is born lactose intolerant, does that mean I potentially cannot breast feed my child?

No, it means you can't drink milk or eat dairy products and you can't give dairy products to your baby.  Breast milk won't cause a baby problems unless you drink milk.  I hope this answers your question.

Are u born lactose intolerent ? Sometimes lactose intolerence can be brought on by gastroenteritis etc where your body no longer produces enough lactase for ur body to tolerate lactose... Lol I would know my newborn became secondary lactose intolerent from gastro but it only lasts a couple of weeks ... Sometimes babies can't tolerate lactose when they are young but they will grow out of it.. If your lactose intolerent and you are going to breastfeed you shouldn't be worried because ur not having lactose anyway... And when u decide to ween him/her of breast milk try normal formula if they have diarreha  that means they are lactose intolerent but they may grow out of it but I doubt they would be lactose intolerent unless its in your genes
