    Default Postpartum Hairloss

    Hey ladies I has a heap of hair loss with my first bub when he was about 4 months old it was incredibly distressing! My hair has recovered 3 years late I still have a lot of short nuts around the crown though.

    My question is if you had it with your first bub did you experience the hair loss again with your second bub?

    Yes. At 4 months, just like it did with my first. It was so bad I was peeling hair off my body, the walls, the floor etc. I ended up getting a pixie cut because it drove me nuts.

    Yep. DS is 12wks and it's starting to fall out now. It wasn't too bad after DD so I'm hoping it won't be too bad this time.

    Yay! Not! The hair everywhere last time drove me crazy! At least I know to expect it again this time and know that eventually it will grow back! Probably will chop it all off as the thinning at the crown when pulled back looked awful!

    Yes- and I have long, thick and dark hair so it was driving everyone in the house nuts! I ended up getting it cut shorter.

    Yes and I dye my hair dark too so I am not looking forward to how much worse this will make my hair but I have so many greys at the very top of my forehead if I don't dye it I look like a witch! It's not going to be pretty!

    I still lose heaps of hair and DD is almost 2.5. Even the hairdresser commented on it when she washed my hair - she asked if I had surgery recently as I had lots of hair falling out. I told her I had a csection, but that it was over 2 years ago.
    After a day of not vacuuming the floors here will be littered with my hair.

    Yes, pretty much the same for both pregnancies and post baby. That being said, i have a lot of hair and don't notice a difference in volume afterwards.
