Hair Loss, 5 months after giving birth?


So, the past few weeks I have noticed my hair is falling out!! I read this can happen after stopping prenatals, but I didnt think it would take this long. I only breastfed for the first two weeks and stopped my prenatals then. My little girl will be 5 months old in a few weeks. Im starting to get worried! Is this normal!? its not like chunks coming out but a good amount! I notice mostly in the shower and when I brush my hair

Very very normal and nothing to do with stopping prenatals. It starts to happen around 3-6 months because of hormones. Some days it probably will feel like you are losing chunks, but don't worry -- it will grow back in.

Yep happened to me 4-5months pp. It also went very brittle and I got a lot of breakage also. Got tufts about 2" long now where lots of new hair had sprung up!

Mine is coming out on chunks now too. Pulled all the loose hairs out before my shower and still got a handful washing my hair. Luckily I have extra so it just looks more normal than usual.

I have been shedding like crazy for about a month now (LO is about 4 1/2 months).

How long have you all been shedding (or long did it last for you)?
