Why do we refer to cow's milk as just milk, but a woman's milk breast milk?


Why don't we say cow's breast milk, or cow's teat milk? Is leaving out the source of the milk making it easier for everyone to consume it? Why don't we just say human milk instead of breast milk? (I know, weird question, random thought)

    I agree 100%. Personally I kind of wonder why drinking human milk past infant years wasn't chosen over drinking infant cow milk. What made us determine which was suitable for adults?

    Ok then why don't we just say human milk? Why is the norm to say breast milk?
