So my son turns a year and 3 months old tomorrow on 1/1/2014. I have been breastfeeding him since day 1. Just wondering if its normal to be sheddingso much hair still. The top part ofy hair is getting so thin I am starting to see skin. What can I take to stop shedding? I started taking vitamins after he turned 1. Anything else I can do so I wont go bald.

Usually that happens around3 months postpartum. I would have your thyroid checked. That is a big indicator.

Definitely not normal to still be happening. I'd see someone about your hormones.

I agree, not normal for it to be happening that much or to the point your hair is thinning that much. I'd go to the doc. GL

Good luck! I'd have it checked into too. With my 3rd my hair thinned by almost half since his birth. It seems to have stopped though and he's almost 6 months.

Get your thyroid checked, that shouldn't still be happening.

Shedding is normal postpartum but if it's excessive, it could be a sign of postpartum thyroiditis.

I agree about getting it checked.
