    Default post partum hair loss

    I lost so much at first in the shower when I washed it that I was sure I was going to go bald! Then it just stopped, I guess around 6 weeks or so.

    Default post partum hair loss

    I lost so much every time I washed my hair post ds2 that I almost considered going to the docs as I was honestly concerned id go bald! And it kept going for about 6 months. But I didn't go bald and it started growing back after that which was annoying because I had all those whispy bits at the front... But it's fine now and didnt happen after ds3!

    DS2 is now 10 weeks old my hair is all over the floors and when I was it my hands are covered in hair. My pubic hair has gone really soft, sparse and hardly grows now, this happened after I had DS1 as well.

    With DS I only breasted for 6 weeks and I don't remember it being this bad. Still feeding DD at 6 months and its BAD! Haha. Perhaps it's a hormone thing?
