Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred is a good one. Going for walks or jogs twice a day are a nice, relaxing way for me to burn calories as well.
This is what I do and I'm lucky breastfeeding takes off the weight. Mine are 21 months apart and I gained 60 yes 60 with both. My body has a strange reaction and holds water when I am pregnant I loss about 40 the week after he was born. Right now I'm a little below the weight I was when DS2 was conceived.
