How to get 2 most recent records of each related row

Let’s say I have these 2 tables:

Users: id, name

Posts: id, user_id, created_at

I am trying to get 2 most recent posts of each user. I have the relationship models set up correctly. At first I thought I could just use ->take(2) but that only returns 2 rows from the whole query.

This is what I have now:

$user->load(['posts' => function($query) {
$query->orderBy('id', 'desc');

That will return all posts for each user. It’s really not a problem right now but if users have hundreds or thousands of posts, that will become a memory hog quickly.

What’s the best way to get last 2 records of each user with hopefully using eager loading? I could easily do it by fetching last 2 records of each user but that’s too many queries.
