Help....hair loss

I'm 4 months postpartum. My hair began falling out about 6 weeks ago and it's really starting to worry me. It's long and dark and literally handfuls of it come away when it's washed or brushed. Never mind finding strands literally all over the house on wooden floors etc. When should it hopefully start to ease? Worried I'll have none left very shortly hmmconfused

It's normal after birth. Went on for a few months after my Dd but it did stop eventually.

It’s normal and the most imo irritating part of having babies. Little piles of hair everywhere and then that itchy spiky stage when it grows back in. Try not to worry about it, it’ll pass.

Don't worry!! It gets thicker when you're pregnant and then goes back to normal. Pretty shocking if you're not expecting it though!!!

I'm 8m PP and it's only now that my hair fall has somewhat reduced. I still leave a trail of dark hair through the flat though and especially in the bathroom 😯

Perfectly normal and really annoying. Just remember to check babies finger and toes for any lose hairs. They can get wrapped around.
