For the past few days my hair all of a sudden is weaker and more brittle than normal and falling out!! Not bald falling out but there is a ton of hair when I brush it.

Ummmm...... anyone lose hair after having a baby? Or is it my age?

Sounds normal to me. With all my kids I started losing a lot of hair a few months after baby... So annoying!! It went in for a while too, like a couple months

I always lose hair after a baby...and this time is just the same. It seems worse for me too though, and maybe it is our age, but it might just seem worse because we like to worry over everything...right?

Pregnancy hair rocks...after pregnancy hair doesnt...
With Kaiden, at right around 3 months post-partum, I was losing TONS of hair...I lost so much that I had wispy bangs for months - until they grew out - not bangs that I cut mind you, bangs because I had just lost so much hair!

I too am in the 3 months PP hair loss club. Some days I swear that I am going bald. I have to brush my hair before I shower so it doesn't clog the drain. I have to clean my brush out every day now. It is gross.

Completely normal. I used to have extremely thick hair that I could barely pull into a ponytail, but when I had William it fell out in clumps.

After CJ I ended up with two bald spots at my temples. They grew back in, but haven't caught up still. I'm hoping I don't lose it all again.

I lost lots of hair after having my two kids. The hair doesn't fall out as much when you're pregnant so you're losing about a years worth of hair now, so it will seem excessive.

I even lost hair about a month after my 2nd miscarriage. I assumed it was because my body didn't let go of the pregnancy until I was 13 weeks along.

I agree; it's totally normal due to decrease in hormones. With my first son, I lost a ton and was constantly brushing it out before I showered and while in the shower. It was everywhere! Not looking forward to that again soon!

My hair is like that all the time due to the PCOS. DH jokes that I could have made 50+ wigs by now
