For weight loss after baby, I have been drinking mummy magic weight loss tea for two months three times a day and shed 35 pounds from my body.

I went through similar hair loss. Although weight loss has never been easily possible due to a hypo thyroide condition and anemia. My sister has presented a great product that has helped many people in our family ( my dad also has a thyroid condition, my mom has cancer, my sister has irritable bowel syndrom, another family member has the Crohn ilness). I was skeptical about the product presented, and did a lot of research, the video that helped me the most understand can be seen on youtube or at the following link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YEmNOYAlKgQ

It has done me a great deal of good and I am very happy to have taken the leap of faith in my sister. I have also noticed that since I have improved drastically my nutrition and my water intake my hair is not falling so much anymore. Keep in mine I always had long hair down the middle of my back and cut it off about 2 years ago because every time I tried to tied it I had bald spots. I hope that this can help you as much as it has helped me and if you want or need more information you can contact me on Facebook, email blue_stahr24@hotmail.com or request it at www.allairej.bodybyvi.com

The hair loss is normal postpartum. After both my kids I lost a TON of hair. It started about 6 weeks postpartum and lasted for about 6-8 months. Basically the pregnancy hormones put your normal hair loss (everyone sheds) into a kind of stasis, you just don't shed as much when you're preggo. This is why most women when they're pregnant have thick, gorgeous hair (I LOVED my pregnancy hair). After the hormones start to fall after you deliver, your body will "catch up" in a sense, basically lose the hair you should have lost over those 9 months. Sometimes you can get a couple little bald patches (I had bald patches along my hairline on my face). It will regrow again. Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about this.

As far as the weight, make sure you're getting your three square meals a day and snacks. Also, if you're nursing, make sure you're taking in those extra calories. You can also get shakes you can drink at home (Ensure, etc.) that are a quick way to put add extra calories into your diet. It's also normal postpartum to struggle with body image. Your body has just undergone a HUGE change, your hormones are wild and crazy right now. It's so hard, but maybe try to focus on the things you like about your body instead of focusing on the things you don't. Hang in there Crystal!

totally. I don't know if you travel but one of the first things that came to my mind was a parasite. My friends who travel to India a lot get them about once a year- ew, right? But it can get taken care of. I hope you get whatever you need and a little break! Stress can really take it's toll. :D

:( Not sure about the weight loss- have you been to your doctor? Are you eating well? Getting enough sleep? I would go in to your doctor.
The hair loss may be related to your weight loss (and possible lack of nutrition) but it could also be the post birth thing- Around 5 months, both times, I started loosing my hair in clumps, and it went on until about a year after the boys were born. Like, filled the drain every time I took a shower, a lot of hair. But I would go in and talk to your doctor just in case it is something more serious.
You must be so tired and stressed. Your doctor might be able to help you, even if it's just making a plan of attack and helping you find some support (mom groups in the area, at a library or local Y, etc). Focus on eating really good fats, like avacados, and protein, to help build muscle, and complex carbs, like whole grains (breads, pastas, granola and oatmeal) and thins like sweet poatoes. Your doc may suggest a nutritionist if that's the issue. Don't fill up on junk, this can cause more serious problems. Thinking good thoughts and sending some hugs your way.
