What is the quality of breast milk if the patient has Type 3 galactosemia? Would there still be sufficient lactose supply in the breast milk?

There isn't really a lot of research and information on this.

Childbirth International states that a mother with galactosemia can safely breastfeed her child and that her milk is normal.
