    Postpartum hair loss

    Advertisements
    I know that hair loss postpartum can be normal, but when does it stop? Mine JUST started this week (Little man is 13 weeks) and it is going STRONG. I am pretty sure I just found a bald spot.
    How much longer can i expect my pretty hair to fall out?
    Also, is there anything i can do to stop this?

    I'm pretty sure my hair loss started around the same time as yours and went for a couple months. The first 2 weeks was the worst (I had a bald spot luckily it was kind of in the middle of my head and I always wear my hair up so I could hide it) and then it started to dwindle. More than usual but not nearly as bad as the first wave.

    Mine fell out from about 3 months PP until 4 or 4 1/2 months PP. My hair got pretty thin, but now it has balanced back out to normal

    Mine started around 3 weeks PP with all my babies and went until about 4ish months, I think. It was awful... I don't know of any way to stop it, either. Like Kat said, though, it did stop eventually, and I have just as much hair now as I did before.

    I will do what God asks me to do; I will give God what I cannot do; and no matter what, I will trust the Lord.

    Yea, I'm still going. Not nearly as strong, but I'm losing it. I NEVER stopped up the shower before baby. After almost every single time I clogged the shower :/

    Mine started within a couple months postpartum. It lasted for maybe a few months. It sucked.
