Yes, yes, milk is the gift of the mother to the child, and that's the magic
that makes fairies like it...

...but the kobolds were perfectly interested in cow's milk earlier.  (Or
goat's milk?)

Regardless of the source, if it was given by the owner to the kobolds, that
ought to be enough to make it magic - whether it came from a human breast
or a cow's udder.  Either the milk itself was enough to interest the
fairies, or being offered it was the kicker.
