  • No. One of my friends is lactose intolerant and her baby isn't.

  • there is a chance, but my friend ate so much strawberries through her pregnancy that her baby came out allergic to them.

  • It's actually abnormal to be tolerant to milk in the animal world (not saying we're animals, but we are mammals) as we become adults. As adults we weren't meant to drink milk. So as an adult, if a person tolerates milk, that person is a wee bit abnormal.

  • a good chance they won't ,but it 's possible. my father in law.. lactose intolerant, well mostly. my husband grew up thinking he was.. maybe he was and outgrew it....but one day he just decide to try out some ice cream and had no problems. now he eats it whenever he wants... drinks full glasses of milk and yogurt with no problem. my guess is his dad probably could to but he is too scared to try.

  • There is a chance, both my children are lactose intolerant (so am I) But they also have the same blood type as me. It isn't so bad being lactose intolerant :)
