Every woman, every baby is different. With my first child, she ate SO MUCH that I literally could not keep up; I lost 30 lbs in 6 weeks.
I was eating well over the recommended 500 calories extra per day just to stay nourished enough. ;)
Now, my second child, I was not so "lucky" - she still had a healthy appetite, but I didn't burn so much, so I d idn't lose anything.
Neither child was malnourished or supplemented, and nursed until nearly a year and a half.
It just depends!
