Going through this as well. I found a posting recently which I wrote when DS1 was 4 months old and I commented on the hair loss and here I am with DS2 going through the same thing at 4 months! Can't remember how long it lasted for..I had longish hair first time round so i cut it all off as the hair loss was annoying me. Short hair this time round and it just looks so rubbish at the moment..limp and lifeless ..probably due to it all falling out! So no advice..just symphathy!
I didn't raelly notice hair loss with dd, but now, with ds 14 months, I am almost bald. I have been losing great hunks of hair for the past 6 weeks, and see patches of my scalp. I can also see very fine new hair growing back (and piles of hair all over the house)
Looks like the general consensus is that this is normal but I will keep an eye on it though. It doesn't help that I have a bit of a hair phobia and can't stand the stuff if it is anywhere other then where it should be, i.e. attached to a head! Have to clear out the bath hole after every shower and it makes me gag when I have to pull out a great wodge of it...ugh.
Thanks Bunjies for asking this questoin - have been meaning to ask myself.
I don't remember it being an issue with ds 4 years ago but this time round it started coming out 4 months after dd was born.
She is nearly 6 months now & I think the loss rate has slowed down but there's still shed loads on the comb every morning and no-one ever borrows my chair in the Office cos it looks like a long haired cat has slept on it!
Mine started falling out when I stopped breastfeeding
I was really depressed about it - my parting seemed to be two inches wide!
Unfortunately I would have to say that it has only got back to it's normal lustrous self this year - DD is 21/2!!!
