Default Losing weight too fast after giving birth

Hi all,
I'm a little concerned with the weight that I'm losing after having my baby. I gained 48 pounds with the pregnancy and I was about 30 pounds overweight before getting pregnant. I had her on February 6th so its only been 3 and a half weeks but I've already lost 27 pounds. I'm loosely following Weight Watchers to help keep from gaining more weight like I did with my first daughter but I'm adding extra calories every day since I'm breastfeeding. Also, I cut out soda completely. I'm not doing any significant exercise other than housework and running after a preschooler. It just makes me nervous how quickly I'm losing the weight. I was expecting to have to dig in a make a concerted effort like I did after the first one. I want to lose weight in a healthy and sustainable way and I'm worried that this fast weight loss will have adverse effects on my health. Has anyone else had any experience with this?
