I thought dairy was stuff that came from cows only, but does it mean all milk products?

Dairy refers to COW milk.

Categorizing, human milk is considered a "clear liquid," if the quesion is for consumption before surgery, for example.

However, in the case of a nursing toddler, I believe that you can count human milk as a serving of "dairy." As far as nutrition questions go, anyway. Soy and rice milks can be counted in that category too.

Human milk is NOT considered dairy according to KellyMom.com

You are not a cow and your milk is not a dairy product.
This was in refernce as to whether mammas milk caused increase in muscus production in a sick baby.

In Judaism, human milk is "parve," or neither dairy nor meat. Probably not the answer you're looking for, though. :-)
