Made some oatmeal this morning from the oat flour I made last night. Whoever said that much water was sadly mistaken if one is to add any milk or formula.
Plus, a word to the wise, don't add more cereal after the rest has absorbed most of the water. Your oatmeal will have dry flakes in it.
Here's what I suggest. Less water to make a fairly thick cereal and then add the breast milk or formula to thin it out for baby.
On that note: I cooked more cereal this morning that I thought the measurements would make so I ended up with a bowl for myself which I added butter and sugar to (no boob milk!) and it was pretty good. Saved me from having to make two meals which I usually do.
