  • Yep, I've lost my hair after my baby was born and hes now 9 months. Its still falling out. Everytime I take a shower globs of hair come out. I think its hormones or something. i hope all of my hair doesnt fall out.

  • I started loosing a little hair around the time my baby was 3 months, she is now 5, and it is starting to slow down now. I have been breastfeeding, you don't say in your post if you are, but I know that it could have something to do with that. My doctor told me that it is the baby taking all the nutrients from your body through the milk, and that's why some women loose their hair. It's pretty common, I think.
