hello...
are you doing Exclusively breast feeding?? Did you had any hormonal shots(injections) or pills?? please remember properly...

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Talk to your doctor and get her bone scan ( x-ray of wrist) done- to see whether her bones are aging faster and also blood reports for thyroid and other endocrine levels... i would suggest to meet a paedeatric endocrinologist... if everything comes normal then dont worry - it might be because when babies are in Utero they absorb a flood of their mothers hormones, and when those hormones start to fade the adrenal gland compensates and adds unneeded hormones for a short period of time, until it realizes the baby doesn't need them and it stops (whereas the hair falls out)...

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Dr. Payal M any other suggestions...
