Is anyone elses hair falling out? I know here lately I've been under a lot of stress and I know hormones are causing it too but it seems like every time I wash my hair or brush it big gobs come out. I feel like I'm going bald. Anybody else going thru this?

Its common for moms to lose hair after baby is born...its hormonal more than anything

 yep, I am. It's crazy. And I hate that feeling during the day when you get a little tickle on your chest.. and it winds up being a strand of hair that fell out. I seem to be picking these off me all day lately.

I swear I think I lost half the hair on my head after my son was born. It was a lot and every time I brushed I'd get a lot more then I thought was normal. It will grow back!

My hair is falling out too. I've clogged the shower drain a couple of times.

My daughter just turned 16-months-old and I'm still nursing her about four times a day and my hair is still falling out!  It totally grosses me out because I seriously find it all over the bathroom floor.  I feel like I spend a lot of time cleaning up the floor in there!  And I freak out if my daughters walk in there with bare feet while I'm brushing my hair because I'm afraid it will get stuck in their toes and get wrapped around them!  I'm nuts, I know!  LOL!  But, you aren't alone, obviously.  Hopefully, it will end soon!

that actually happened to me! The only difference was I was breastfeeding my DD and she somehow managed to get my hair wrapped around her little thumb. It was cutting of the circulation and everything and nothing I did would get it off.. we had to go to the ER and have them remove the hair from her finger. I really thought she was going to lose her thumb.. scared the heck outta me. luckily she still has all of her fingers and toes lol
