They are also often portrayed as nurses bearing babes and/or giving milk. Utterance 555 has: "I have assumed the White Crown and the Green Crown...My mother is Isis, my nurse is Nephthys"; and CT Sp 16 has: "For you are Horus with his White Crown on his head (and righteousness on his brow)...Isis bore him, Nekhbet raised him". I think it safe to say that the association was already taking place in the M.K.

You are focussing here on a secondary issue, one that I believe supports the main point but is not actually crucial to it.
