Yes it is true but drinking water helps too. I was having issues with my supply, even with drinking lots of water, so I was eating quaker chewy bars, the oatmel kind all the time, even in the middle of the night when Kaylee woke up to nurse I had a chewy bar
and it did help my supply.
And you can ask a million questions if you need that is what we are here for.

I didn't eat oatmeal before and never ate it after, but I've read many places that that's true.
The biggest things that I noticed were drinking enough water and resting enough. If I wasn't very good about drinking water or I let myself get too tired.... that's when the problems started.

Yes, it does help!! Oatmeal, water, More Milk Plus, and domperidone were my magic ingredients!!! Oh, yeah...and 2 months before I started pumping I was on the bcp called Yasmin (but that was for the adoptive bf protocol I was on). Just make yourself some oatmeal cookies and have a couple a day!! I know a lady that bought those Little Debbie Oatmeal cookie things with creme between them and she said even THAT helped!! What an excuse to pig out!
