Oatmeal question

I've been reading to eat oatmeal for supply. Does it have to be the kind you cook or can it be the instant in the package?

I have heard it has to be the kind you cook, but I used the instant with results.

Re: Oatmeal question

If you want the best I've heard to use the normal kind.

I do fridge oatmeal.

equal parts of regular oats (not quick cook), yogurt and milk, leave in the fridge overnight and in the morning top with whatever and microwave quickly!

Mmmmnnnn that sounds good.

I tried the overnight crock pot kind with apples and cinnamon but it was a big failure...
I'm gonna try your ridge kind.

Re: Oatmeal question

I use regular old fashioned oats. I have to say I really think it works. I have the best supply ever with this baby.

I eat a 2cup pyrex bowl of oatmeal almost every morning for breakfast.

I make a big batch on Sunday and then portion it out into individual bowls for the week.

I use old fashioned oats and flax meal, honey and brown sugar. I just cook the oats that way when I reheat they are not overcooked.

Re: Oatmeal question

I've also used oatmeal to make lactation cookies. When you find a spare hour to bake, make a bunch. Then it's so easy to grab a cookie when you're hungry and baby is fussy. Yum! The cookie recipes online use oatmeal, milled flaxseed, and brewers yeast. FYI, look for brewers yeast in the vitamin supplement section or at a GNC/Vitamin Shoppe store.

Sorry to butt in...I'm not a traditional oatmeal fan. (I have texture issue!) I use the old fashioned oats to make granola. Would that work?

I make steel cut oats (boil for 10 min first) and prep into mason jars with milk, fruit, sugar, and nuts. Sealing the oats up hot and keeping in the fridge will help them cook and stay fresh. As the week goes on, they get more chewy! I am pumping an extra 3oz everyday at this point.
