Gained 19 kg with dd1 and lost 11kg in the first six weeks and another 4kg in the next year but fell pregnant when dd1 was 13mths old.
Gained 16kg with dd2 and again lost 11 in the first six weeks and another 6kg 6mths later.
I refuse to compromise my milk supply so will only weight control after dd2 is 12mths old.
For the lucky people that lost all their weight or didn't put any on- did it effect your milk supply or quality of milk?
I'm worried that if I lose the weight too quickly that my milk will go. So I eat a diet high in omega 3 fats and generally need about 2000-2200 cal a day to maintain milk supply.
