Is baldness only a matter of time?

I can't remember when your hair starts to fall out after a baby arrives. Does it happen to everyone? When does it start? if I've got to 5 weeks with it all still hanging in there am I out of the woods?
Does breastfeeding affect what happens at all?
Would be grateful for your thoughts....

mine hasn't and my dts are 3 months. I can remember it pretty soon after dd, and ds, so I'm hoping I've escaped this time. Will be watchign this thread too.

My hair started to fall out between 3 to 5 months post delivery.

Does anyone know if three months is kind of average for hair loss to begin? Don't want to get attached to mine if it is....

I thought I'd got away with it, in fact I was feeling pretty smug..... Until at around 4 months it started coming out in enormous clumps
