I gave birth in May, when DD was about 4 months old my hair fell out a bit. Same thing happened after the birth of both of my DSs so I wasn't worried. After a couple of months the "shedding" stopped. But now it's happening again!!!! DD is 9 months now. Anyone else had TWO periods of hair "shedding" post-partum? My hair is still a bit sparse from the first time it fell out so I'm worried I'm going to look bald!!!!

Is this normal and do any of you know something I could do that might slow it or stop it from happening?

You might want to get your thyroid checked, that can cause hair loss and sometimes shows up as a problem post partum (but I am currently concerned about my own thyroid, so every time I see someone post about one symptom that they have that matches I think "Thyroid!")

This happened to me because I had hypothyroidism. Just FYI hairloss can be indicative of other health problems.
