    Default instant oatmeal

    I hear that eating oatmeal can help increase or maintain one's milk supply. Does the oatmeal have to be the bland one or will instant oatmeal do the trick.

    i've heard both...some women swear by instant oatmeal, others say that they have to eat the slow-cooked type...and some mothers say that they noticed a difference too by eating oatmeal cookies! you can try the different types out and see what works best for you! good luck!

    I've done both, instant and regular, and I didn't notice a difference between the two. I would still get about the same amount of milk with either one.

    Thanks for the responses. I'll give it a try. I'm also drinking the nursing mom tea. I'm pumping six times a day and getting good results. I want to keep it that way
