My DD is 5mo and I am still losing lots of hair. Its been happening for a couple of months now and I'm starting to get a little concerned. I also have a 20mo DS, so maybe I'm losing more hair this time around because I got pregnant so soon after he was born??? How long did your hair continue to fall out after you gave birth?

6-7 months after all three pregnancies. Crazy, isn't it?

DS2 will be 7 months next week and my hair loss just started to slow down and the bald patches that formed on my temples have finally grown in (hair is about an inch long there). I've heard it can be worse with each kid, which was definately the case for me the second time around. It started around 2 1/2 months postpartum.

Mine stopped falling out around 10 or 11 months postpartum both times. I felt like I was going bald.

Is losing hair your only symptom? Are you more fatigued than normal (I mean, possibly beyond what's "normal" with a young infant)? Are you constipated? Do you have dry skin? Anything else which might seem "off"?

This. Your kiddos are really close together and it could be that your a bit depleted in the nutrient department which can also put a strain on your adrenals and thyroid. An underfunctioning thyroid, even if it's minor will cause you to lose quite a bit of hair, but if that' the issue it's fairly easy to support it. Believe it or not these little warning signs can be really helpful if you catch on early enough!
