Starting that dreaded pp hair loss ick!

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Starting that dreaded pp hair loss ick!

Postby mom2abandkb » Sat Nov 28, 2009 1:07 am

I'm over 3 months pp and I am not pumping, so I finally quit my prenatals about 2 weeks ago and started on a regular women's vitamin. Just this week my hair started falling out.

Uggh it's so annoying and it happened with dd1 also. Can somebody remind me how long this lasts and if there is anything to make it better?

thanks!

My hair has just started falling out also! I don't know if there is anything we can do to make it better, as it's just the hair that we didn't lose during pregnancy that is now falling out. I just keep my hair tied in a ponytail during the day otherwise the house would be covered in my hair and then give it a good brushing in the morning and evening to get rid of the loose hair.

It lasted around 3 months- maybe longer. It felt like forever though!

I hated it.
