Anyone else losing their hair. I read about it and apparently it is normal and usually occurs around 3 months or so after birth. But it is freaking me out.

Yeah, I'm almost five months postpartum, and it's starting to literally come out in clumps.

My hair is really long and thick anyway, so it doesn't look like it's thinning out. It's still alarming though!

Clutch, I agree, it is alarming.

My hair is falling out, but I don't think it's affected my hairline.

Later. No, really, later. I've read it can be anywhere from two to twelve months. Unless you're getting bald spots, it's not really anything to worry about. You can try upping your iron intake - that's supposed to help.

I'm losing gobs of hair, but no noticeable hairline issues. Overall thin-looking, though. And it feels kinda, I dunno, limp, I guess.
In all affairs it's a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on the things you have long taken for granted.

This is by far the worst I"ve had it. I constantly pull out handfuls of hair. And Juliet always has my hair stuck in her hands. But in spite of all the hair I lose, I still have really thick hair. I don't know how that's even possible cos I feel like I should be almost bald by now:/

I'm four and a half months postpartum and my hair is coming out in clumps. My husband says it looks like I kill a dead animal every night when I shower and brush my hair. It's EVERYWHERE. He asked if I'm having chemotherapy behind his back...its that bad...

I'm losing my hair too and I'm ready for it to stop. I've had chemotherapy and had my hair come out in true clumps so I know it's not quite that bad but it's still unnerving. I never had hair loss with my other two kids.
