This paper identifies determinants of women's postpartum weight and weight change in a large group of Filipino women followed for 24 mo.
Longitudinal, multivariate models focused on the effects of lactation, while controlling for energy intake, energy expenditure, reproductive history and seasonality.
Lactation was found to have a significant negative effect on weight of urban women.
The negative effects of lactation increased with the intensity and duration of breastfeeding.
Among rural women negative effects of lactation on weight were observed only after 10-14 mo.
