Does anyone have another sign for "milk" than the milking-cows-udders one?

There is a breastfeeding one, using your thumb and forefinger making a sort of pinching motion by your nipple. I prefer the cow one!

I found the book and it explains it better. 'Left arm in position of holding baby, right fingers and thumb mime squeezing nipple'.

I was taught to do it with just one hand for breast feeding. DD makes a open-close-open sign with her hand. Almost like waving bye, but her hand is held 90degrees from a wave position iyswim.

We do the cow one. General milk rather than mummy/fridge milk

We do the opening and closing hand to mean my milk.

DS2 hasn't ever drunk cows' milk, but ds1 did the two handed milking cows one to mean cows' milk.
