      Lorie - human females produce hormones in the milk, also. I found out one day that when a baby nurses, a tiny bit of saliva is taken up in the breast and the mother's body reads the saliva and produces whatever antibodies the baby needs at the time. How perfect is this world in so many ways!

      Fiddler, Yes, My thin, fine hair actually was nice when PG. Grew Bra size too:) . Interesting about the saliva too. But, at this stage of life with the C, think milk has served its purpose. Oatmilk tastes better anyway.

      I like oatmilk, but it's way too "carby" for me--per my weight-management nurse practitioner. I usually mix an organic ultra-filtered (even lower-carb than Fair Life) milk with unsweetened vanilla almondmilk (Blue Diamond). The latter is the only plant milk that froths up reliably in a Nespresso Aeroccino. (I use milks for cappuccinos & lattes, sometimes on grain-free and keto "cereals"). I do keep oatmilk on hand for a latte-loving friend who thinks almond milk is eco-unfriendly (and is convinced it uses so much water that it's helped cause CA's fires); but since the pandemic she hasn't been over, of course.
