I was a little too small before my babies too. With my first two, I usually got back to an ideal size within 4 months without ever trying or paying attention, but then lost too much later, after i stopped breastfeeding, as if nature helped me hold on to the extra reserve pounds needed to make milk. Which sounds like what you want.
With my last, i gained only 30, and came home only 10 lbs up from pre-pregnancy but then actually gained 5-10 lbs in the first postpartum months as if making up for the fact that i didn't have quite enough reserves left from pregnancy. So again, nature kept me from 'flying away' while breastfeeding.
I personally think when anyone says breasfeeding causes weightloss, they are just trying to convince you to do it, lol, and entirely missing the real point of doing it and how it still requires you to have adequate fat.
And i bet you will enjoy your new figure.
