Post pregnancy hair loss

DD is now 16 weeks old and I've had the dreaded hair loss for the past 4 weeks or so. However it is starting to worry me as it seems to be falling out more than with my last two DC.

From experience I remember it going on until they were about 6 months old, and at this rate I'll have no hair left.

Is there anything I can do to lessen the amount of hair loss, pretty please, before I'm bald by Christmas. sad

My hair fell out for 7 months, in the end I chopped My gorgeous long hair into a bob, and surprisingly it worked, My hair stopped falling out, it could have just been a coincidence tho.

Last time I ended up cutting my hair shorter, but I now have 3 DC and don't have time to spend on my hair. I need to be able to just brush it and tie it back.
