So is anyone else loosing a ton of hair? I know I've heard of this but OMG it is falling out in chunks. I wake up in the morning and my pillow is covered.
Also is anyone else's LO allergic to the protein in cows milk? Jay started all of a sudden getting diarrhea and they tested and found out he was allergic. I'm hoping he grows out of it. I have to have him on Allimentum formula, luckily Enfamil makes it and Walmart has a generic cause the Similac that my doc wanted him on was like $30 for a 1 lb container. He is doing well on the generic.
I have only had a little hair loss, so far.
Not much hair loss here. Your LO is adorable btw.

I feel like I'm shedding all the time. When I have my 7 minute shower enough hair comes out that it blocks the drain. I did this with DD1 too.
I hope you can get the milk allergy sorted out!

I'm still bf the twins, but they are so miserable all.the.time. that i started an elimination diet yesterday and its dairy that I cut out. I really hope it helps, even though it sticks!
I haven't started yet, but I'm sure it's coming soon. I think it was 3-4 months it started with my other kids. Ack! Not looking forward to it, my hair got really nice this pregnancy
Hope the new formula continues to do well with him!

If your hair loss is excessive… have your doctor check your thyroid levels. Post-Partum Hypothyroidism is not at all uncommon and can create a false post-partum depression.
I am psitive that Evie is VERY sensitive to dairy. She wasn't diagnosed, I just cut it out of my diet completely. When I have ANY dairy (we are talking traces of it in taco seasoning or chicken bullion cubes) she is in pain and won't poop the next day or two. So not worth consuming it.
