My newest babe is just over three months old and I am noticing my hair starting to fall out. I also notice that my baby's hair is falling out too. This happened with my first babe-my hair seemed to be falling like crazy. Every time I washed my hair there would be tons in my hands and I found my hair all over my house when I'd sweep. I was 6 months post partum when I got pregnant with my second child and so my hair stopped falling out until just recently.
I am afraid of going bald, or close to it. For this pp hair shed I have cut my hair very short so that it is easier to deal with.
Do any of you know if this is normal and how long it lasts? Is it permanent? When do our hormones go back to normal? I am breastfeeding and planning on at least one yr of it.
Am I going to be a hormonal mess until I'm done breastfeeding???
