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....

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
