I don't really know what to make of this. DD is now just over three months and my hairs has begun to SHED...literally as of two weeks ago. when i shower, there are LOCKS of hair left in the tub. if i run my hands through my hair, let alone combing it, significant amounts of hair is removed. besides the fact that it is just horrible, and i cant remove a pony holder from my hair without ripping out half of it, i am worried that it might be something more serious. is this normal for postpartum or should i go check this out? i do remember that when my younger sis had this problem as a teen my parents were quiet worried about it and took her to the pediatrician. don't remember what happened after that though. did anyone else have this as well? is it something normal or not? please advise!!

Mine was bad enough that I had to get a fringe cut in to cover my receding hair line. DD is 14mo now and my hair's getting back to normal.

Stick some Veet on the plughole after a bath/shower. You don't need to scoop all the hair out then grin

I have dyed red hair. It's bloody everywhere ATM. DS is 7mo, the moulting is finally slowing...
