    Default Oatmeal cookies??? Really??

    I don't like oatmeal. However, I love oatmeal cookies. Can I eat oatmeal cookies to boost my milk supply?

    yes, it's the oats not the fact that it's hot oatmeal (although some people think the hot oatmeal helps because it's calming). Brown rice, green leafy vegetables also help.

    You can buy some Milkmakers cookies, or make them yourself. Some coconut helps with letdown and increases richness.

    Oh, this thread is awesome. I LOVE oatmeal cookies. The next time I make a batch I can justify it as a medical need, haha!
