Normal unfortunately. I thought I was going bald and now I look like a lion as it grows back

funny

In the same exact boat. I know it’s natural, but I started taking supplements and using hair care treatments so I *feel* like I’m in control of it lol I’ve also noticed baby hairs on my LOs sheets…been hoping her bald spot would grow in soon, but it looks like we’ve gone the opposite direction

Same. I cut mine expecting less and still hair everywhere 😂😂😂

Omg are you me?! I got out of the shower this morning and looks like I lost half of my hair! 😩

Very common

3.5 months pp as well. I lose 3 balls a day. I got the Vichi shampoo, but all my mom friends said to wait for it to pass, it is what it is. It is because of the hormonal drop. My baby was born with a full head of hair (long), and she is losing the hair on the back. The rest is fine... I think that it is normal to lose it as well, that is why some people shave babies' heads.

Same… it’s just the back part of his head! I hope it comes back for him more than I hope it does for me!

Omg! I don’t know if I have enough to begin with and survive six months of hair loss! Lolll

Anyone recommend good supplements to help ?

Make sure you’re not using OGX shampoo and conditioner - there is a class action lawsuit against them for their products causing hair loss. I started having postpartum hair loss and then it just kept continuing for months. I read about the lawsuit, switched shampoo and conditioner, and it immediately stopped falling out and seems so much healthier now!

Did anyone's brains just stop working while pregnant? I'm 13 weeks and can only manage to work half days. I'll sit at my computer for 12 hours and bill only 3-4 hours instead of my standard 8-10. I have work to do, but zero motivation or availability to focus unless there's a looming deadline. Does this phase pass? Did this happen to anyone else?

For the attorney moms, how do you focus/prioritize work? I’m a recent-ish mom and have been back to work for about 2 years at two different firms in that time. But I constantly struggle with guilt and putting off or slacking on work because it feels like my brain is hardwired to prioritize time with my child. I always feel like I’m lacking in one department. Will it ever get better? Any tips or similar experiences welcome!
