In brief: Lupus
Lupus itself should not present a problem. You will want to review your medications with your obstetrician or pediatrician for safety

In brief: Absolutely. Check Rx
There is no problem with breastfeeding with a diagnosis of lupus in the mother. However, check with your OB as to which medications you are allowed to take while breastfeeding.
Your OB can coordinate treatment with your rheumatologist.
