It's normal. You usually score a beautiful head of thick healthy hair while pregnant, just to lose it after birth or after weaning.
I happened to me, and it stops and your hair volume returns to normal.

It is completely normal and affects some more than others. it seems those hormones that keep hair so beautiful during pregnancy disappear therafter and your hair starts falling out/becomes very dry. It will settle down. Just use a good shampoo and eat healthily to keep the ones you have in good condition!
