I am wondering what I can do about my hair falling out

Ever since I got pregnant with my baby, my hair is falling out in chunks. This happend with my first right after I started nursing, but it stopped falling out after a couple of weeks after I stopped.
I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and if so what did you do about it?

  • Try shampoo and conditioner for hair loss or thinning hair. It will help with not losing so much. It does help me when I lose my hair. Keep taking your prenatal's as well.

  • Yes, it is normal. It will grow back eventually. You could cut your hair short if it is really bothereing you then let it grow out later.

  • I had my baby 6 months ago and my hair is still falling out! I remember this happening after my daughter was born but didn't think it lasted this long!

  • if it's falling out in chunks, literally, see a doctor, it may be a form of alopecia.

    but it's probably hormonal. Anything more that 100 pieces of hair seek a doctor. but 50-100 hairs a day is normal.
