Vegan question...

coworker poses the question:

If a baby's mother is vegan, but the baby breastfeeds, is the baby vegan?

Surely he or she isn't ingesting animal flesh or animal products, but are we not also animals and breastmilk the byproduct? I'm thinking the baby might have to be called vegetarian?


One more that I think I know the answer to, but just to clarify: If a breastfeeding mom eats meat, is the baby vegetarian or no?
