Is anyone else experiencing this already?? Last time it didn't start until about 3 months postpartum. But I'm already losing a bunch in the shower and when I comb my hair. I hate it!!

Ugh I'm dreading it. Mine hasn't started yet, like you said I usually start at 2/3 months.

Not looking forward to that part. I have really short hair so it is really obvious when it starts to thin. I had a receding hairline with my first. Yuck

It's terrible for me, as I've always worn my hair very long (like down to my butt). But I outsmarted the post-partum shed this time... last week I had about 14" of hair cut off.

Mine started at 3 months with DD. I have a ton of hair so it's not really an issue until it starts to grow back. I had a weird fly-away halo last time. It didn't look awful because I had bangs but now I don't and I REALLY don't want them again. I hope it's not too bad!
