I continued to lose hair until my daughter was about 6 months old. This is normal after you have a baby.

Me also. It should slow down soon. By 6 or 7 months it had slowed down for me. It was rapid and lots of hair from about 3-5 months though! I thought I was going to be bald.

I think it's from the hormonal changes.  My hair thinned out a lot once my son was born.  kennedydp5 is right, get a trim.  It should make the hair a lot healthier.

i lost from 3 months to about 6 months. i didn't realize how much til recently when it started to grow back. i actually have huge patches of 1 to 2 inch hairs, especially by my hair line. if i don't blowdry it immediately they stick straight up all day.
