    Mine would fall out in handfuls, totally normal. I think mine stopped falling out when DS was 6-8months

    It is normal. Most people shed about 100 hairs per day but once you are pregnant this stops happening (hence why it is common to have thicker hair during pregnancy). Once bub is born all this extra hair will fall out, it can last about 6 months or so.

    Thank you everyone for your responses. I have lost a lot of hair, it looks pretty bad, I thought maybe food or vitamins could help.
