I am now below my supply threshold weight from DS1, with no dip at all. I think the higher fat/protein diet has been helping keep things going.

Hope things continue to go in the right direction for you!
I was losing a lot of weight until about a month ago because my daughter needed dairy free milk. I've been back to eating dairy for about a month and have stopped losing weight. I eat a good amount of Greek yogurt, cook with butter and make my oatmeal with milk. Still no AF since 3 or 4 months BEFORE I got pregnant with dd (good proof you can get pregnant without AF!) so I don't think that's an issue. My supply has been plenty for my dd all week and she's been a much happier/content nursling. Who knows! I'm just glad it's back. I appreciate all of the help/support.
