Lactose intolerance is actually not very common in infants and typically only starts showing up after age three in children who were born full-term. All babies are born with lactase in their intestines. However, the majority of premature infants will be able to consume lactose-containing formula and breast milk.

Most likely not, as milk, whether which source contains lactose. Humans upon birth do have the lactase enzyme to digest the lactose sugar present in milk, but subsequently lost as there is no more milk in their diet.

You may be confusing lactose intolerance for cow's milk allergy which is more common for infants. My baby is allergic to cow's milk but she can take breast milk just fine
