Anyone else losing their hair?

I guess it is more because of pp hormone changes, not necessarily BFing, but I'm losing my hair again just like after DC#1 was a few months old. This time it seems worse though, it looks like male pattern baldness when I pull my hair back. Maybe I should stop wearing it back in a ponytail. Last time I used an herbal shampoo, anyone have any other tips? Should I discuss with my OB at my annual exam next months, could some medication/hormone help?

Yep! It is terrible. Mine, too, looks like male pattern baldness when pulled back.

Yup. I lost what I thought was a lot of hair with DS. But then after DD I lost even more than with DS. I have heard hair loss after the second child is worse. I think I have finally gotten to the point that I am just having normal hair loss, and DD is 10 months.

OMG I am so with you. I did the same thing with DD1.
DH called me Chewbaca (sp?) the other day after he looked at the shower drain.

I lost a lot too...definitely has nothing to do with BFing though.

My sister had literal bald spots and she FF her son.
