Anyways, its falling out insanely and I hate it. Just wondering if anyone else is having this problem?
Jen, mama to (M-13, N- 10, C- 8 J- 3.5, and J -2, A (10/4/07) and 3 early losses)
We are expecting baby #7 in November 2013
I had it happen early with my dd, and then I heard about upping the b vitamins and the hair loss stopped and grew in very quickly. This time around, I am taking loads of B's post partum and no hair loss! A naturopath gave me a supplemet that helped my hair drow quick with B's and spanish moss when I had my dd. It is totally safe to take while breastfeeding too. If I have to, I will get some more of that.
But I am a hairdresser and I just wanted to let everyone know (incase you didn't already know) that no one is technically "losing" hair. On the average, people lose a well over a hundred hairs a day. However, when you are pregnant, you stop losing that many hairs, that is why our hair starts to look so much thicker. Unfortunately, after pregnancy, all those hairs that should have fallen out but didn't, all seem to come out at once.
Just thought I would mention that, to help calm some of the panic.

I am losing hair now but I think it's 'cause of my meds. I'm actually glad, I was ridiculously poofy with way too much hair going on the entire pregnancy and afterward.
