I'm 6 years down the line love and still losing.....that said, it's very thick, so won't be going bald any time soon!

Don't worry - it'll lessen out over 6 months.

HI there -

Know how you feel believe you me - I lost loads but did not go bold, it did stop at around 4 months or so and it started to regrow. At one point I got so worried I went out and bought a hairloss shampoo and conditioner, got it at Boots, Klorane
Quinine B6 Shampoo / Cond - around 6 quid each. I really thought I was losing a lot less after just one wash. Finished the bottle and then went on to their gentle frequent use shampoo.

Now at 8 months I have loads of new short hair - getting there

It is a big joke in my house. I have to sweep and hoover every couple of days... my hair is everywhere!

Found it wrapped around the baby's neck shock, in his fist, in the washing machine, on the cooker... bloomin' everywhere!

Haven't noticed any bald patches but have got as few short hairs coming through. Is bit annoying but will sort itself out in the end.

Mine is doing the same at the moment, its horrible -as you say hair everywhere! I remember with my DD it did settle down after about 8 months so the end is in sight.
