My 7.5mth old baby girl's hair started to shed, Is this normal?

I just noticed my 7.5mth old baby girls hair started to shed all over the back, closer to the neck area. Is this normal? I'm still breastfeeding but also supplementing with formula since she is under weight (12 lbs and 6oz). I'm also feeding her solids at this time.

I know it is normal for babies do loose their hair from newborn to 6mths old and that they typically have a bald spot from sleeping on their backs, but this isn't it.

I'm really worried it can be my hypothyroidism that I am taking medication for or because she is lacking nutrients.

Please help.

This sounds like something you should definitely discuss with your doctor and/or pediatrician.
