  • You might want to get your thyroid levels checked. My hair fell out really bad when my thyroid was out of whack. Thyroid problems can also make you feel more stressed about things than you normally would.

  • On average, a person tends to lose 100-150 hairs per day naturally. If you are losing more than this, you may have a problem. Try to take "me-time." Take a bath, hire a sitter and do lunch and light shopping with a friend. I also always try to never go to bed angry. I try to be heard in my arguements with DH instead of winning the arguements. I don't over-commit myself to things. I've learned to say "no." I stay organized so that I'm not freaking out when I need to find something or something isn't clean when I need it. Hair loss is not uncommon after having a baby. If you feel you're losing too much hair, I'd visit the doctor and have him run some blood tests. While hair loss can be stress related, it can also signify underlying medical problems. Hair loss is a symptom of several different serious Endocrine system disorders. Good luck!
