Hello all - I'm curious to know if what my pediatrician (the same one who suggested supplementing recently - a different post of mine) is right that my hair is going to keep falling out as long as I breastfeed. Baby is 4 months old and I haven't gotten my period back yet, which I know is normal, although my hair started shedding about 5 weeks ago and hasn't stopped yet. I feel like I am going to go bald!
1) is there a link between bf/ milk supply and hair loss? In other words if I keep nursing is my hair going to just keep shedding like crazy?
2) is there a link between milk supply and your hormones returning to "normal" (ie getting your period again)?
Thanks for any insight!
