When did you start losing your hair after having your baby. I cannot remember when this happens post birth. My baby is 11 weeks old and I am bracing myself for it.
I remember it happening before and being really upset at the ammount of hair I was losing. Then I became preg again and it stopped falling out. However, that is NOT and option his time

DOn't forget to buy a plughole strainer! Mine started falling out after 3 months and I probably collected the equivalent of another head's worth of hair! (Should have sold it for Posh's extensions, or is that So last season, now?)

mine has just started coming out in handfuls
DS is 16 weeks and it started about a week or so ago. Sorry!
