    Default Hair loss!!

    I've searched for hair loss on the forums but can't find anything in relation to my situation.

    My DD is almost 15 months. I must have lost a bit of hair early on after she was born as I have regrowth around my hair line. However for the past month (ie, since DD was about 14 months old) I've been losing handfuls. Has anyone else lost hair this late after giving birth?? I'm starting to get really worried. I stopped breastfeeding when DD was 11 months so could it be that my hormones are just now changing?

    Any ideas on how to slow it down??

    TIA

    Completely normal, happened to me about the same amount of time after weaning. Nothing you can do unfortunately but it will grow back. It's just the hair you didn't lose during pregnancy/feeding (due to hormones) coming out all at once.

    Go see the GP if you are worried.

    Thyroid and hormones go out of balance as a result of pregnancy. Thyroid misfunction can result in hair loss. Maybe go to your GP and ask them to do a hormone profile and thyroid function test.

    Completely normal.

    I lost hair for a good 12 months after both my boys were born.
