WOOOOO.... I had my son 4 months ago, and I'm losing tons of hair... Is this normal? I had got my thyroid checked, and it is fine. I heard this can happen 3-4 months after giving birth. Your body is getting rid of the hair your body held on to while preggers. Is this true? Also, should i still take my prenatal at this time. Help... :_)

Feb. 1, 2008 at 12:42 AM My son is four and half months and my hair falls out in huge clumps everyday.  I know lots of women whose babies are this age and they are all experiencing it.  Just another fun postpartum secret that no one tells us :)

Feb. 5, 2008 at 11:38 PM My hair falls out the most when I wash also. My doc told me to take the prenatals and it should slow down. I was so scared I thought some thing was so seriously wrong LOL. When and if I have another I will stay on my prenatals for the full year after like they told me too. Thanks guys I'm happy to hear I'm not the only hair loseing freak. JK lol.
