My son is 5 and quit nursing a few months ago. After being at least a few sips every night, it was a few weeks of nursing a couple times a week, then only once every so often for a couple months, until he was finally done. It didn't seem sudden. However, since around the same time he quit the daily nursing, my hair has been falling out and continues to do so. It has always been realllly thick but now there is much less overall and it's noticeably thinning along my part line! Is it possible it is related to the quitting nursing/hormone fluctuation? Anyone else that's had this? I had my iron and thyroid checked at my annual exam in Sept and was told all was fine. I'm not having any other major symptoms that point to other issues.

I think I posted to your other thread. Check that and see if anything I asked you has occurred as it may be the cause.

Yes, thank you! I replied there but I think the comment is still waiting in moderation. No, I haven't changed anything at all about my diet (we're vegan) and my weight is stable. The only thing that's changed, other than the nursing ceasing, is that I did quit my full time job a couple months before the hair loss began.
