Seriously. I remember this happening last time (6 years ago), but it just doesn't want to stop! My baby is now almost 4 1/2 months old and my hair has been shedding constantly- sometimes a lot in the shower etc- and is thinning pretty bad :( ... I just don't recall it being so bad or lasting so long! Kind of worried it could mean something is wrong. Anyone have insight about this? Thanks!
I'm having the same thing happen. Ds will be five months next Thursday and it seems like my hair is all over the house.

My hair kept shedding until 6 or 7 months! last week I noticed all these baby hairs in the hair line and then on the top of my head, looks really weird. I think my hair fell out the most around 4 months.

I had long hair and started losing it around 4 mths pp, didn't stop for months until I cut it shoulder length and pretty much from one day to the next the loss decreased by half!

really? I wonder why this is?! It's good to know but I look lame with shoulder length hair. I may try it anyways! I'm losing hair like crazy and baby is only 4 mos 2 weeks so who knows how much hair I will have left by 7 mos...
I lostnhair like crazy too until just about 24 weeks pp.I had horrible bald spots at each temple and had to change my haircut to cover them! it's finally starting to grow back but I still won't be able to pull my hair back for a while...
I've heard different theories about why it happens, one regarding changing hormones and one regarding the body's reaction to extreme physical stress (hmmm...wonder what that could have been?)
My hair started falling out suddenly at about four months PP. Like, leaving big enough piles for people to slip on. It stopped just as suddenly about a month later after I had my hair cut and thinned with the thinning shears.
