:

I feed oats to my mares (horses) to relieve engorgement...and it works quite well! Just wondering why bfing mothers would eat oats to increase their milk supply? Does it have the opposite effect in people?

(Don't shoot-honest question!)

i don't know the exact science, but inositol, a sugar molecule, is a major step/component/building block for human milk production and oats are plentiful in inositol.
