Low Fat Or Full Cream?

Each time I drink low fat milk or eat low fat yoghurt, my mil and well-meaning relatives would be commenting that I should not be consuming low fat dairy products since I am breastfeeding exclusively.  They tell me that I should be eating full cream dairy products so that my milk would be thicker, thus fills Baby C up longer.  Is this a fact?  I had read from breastfeeding sites that a nursing mum does not necessarily need to consume full cream dairy products. In fact water is sufficient, together with a healthy and sensible diet.  So the hubs does not buy me low fat fresh milk anymore.  He’s only buying full cream milk for me.  That’s one of the reasons why my weight just won’t budge despite me exercising everyday! 

This milk even comes with DHA, Omega and all that jazz that’s supposedly nourishing to the heart and brain.
