  • I didn't have a lot of hair loss, I only noticed it after I took a shower and brushed my hair out!

  • hair loss during pregnancy isn't normal. You could be lacking in nutrition. Normally your hair will get thicker during pregnancy because it's growth cycle lengthens.

  • My hair fell out for months after I had DD. The hormones that kept it from coming out during pregnancy are going away, and you body is trying to "make up" for that. You normally lose a little hair each day, but if you're pregnant you don't lose any. Consider it 9 months of hair loss all at once. Once things level out hormonally, it shouldn't be as noticeable when it falls out.

  • My baby is 7 months old and I'm still dealing with this. It stopped right around a year with all three of mine. There really isnt' anything you can do about it. I would just brush my hair more often through out hte day. This helped get in the brush and not all over the floor :)
    I also brush my hair in the shower. Wash my hair like normal, put the conditioner in. Before I rinsed out the conditioner I brush my hair. I do this about once a week. Since doing that it really seems to have slowed it down a little. I'm not seeing as much around the house and in the baby's fingers
