  • Get your thyroid checked out. Loss of hair is a sign of your thyroid hormone levels being out of whack.

  • after having a baby you can lose your hair. And a lot of stress you can also lose your hair.

  • it probably has to do with having a baby. It happened to me with both mine. Your hair gets thicker cause of being preggo then when those hormones go away it thins out again. it will stop soon.

  • Gotta love those hormones!! I thought sure I was gonna go bald after I had my son. It's normal to loose a lot of hair after you have baby though it may take longer if you breastfeed.

  • It is from having a baby. Your hair gets thicker when you are pregnant because of the change in hormones. So then after you have the baby all that extra hair " sheds" so to speak. Don't worry you're not going bald.
