You're both welcome. 
I feel like, since I've made it this far (14 months of transition, 1 year and 6 months officially on the 23rd), Im almost obligated to share the knowledge I've acquiredLOL

the only advice i can offer is to keep your hair stretched as much as possible.

veemack-my hair is shedding no breakage with white bulbs ive come to the conclusion my hair hates protein except the aphrogee 2min for some reason that makes my hair incredibly soft...but i will look into Qhmet Biologics

 swift-i will check out the transitioning thread because i think it would be more help to wash my hair in braids....any ideas how to stretch out my hair w/o blowdrying??

yaya24- too funny lol hey i made it this far

**Sk!TtLeS B**- i will try garlic supplements....anything to make this transition easier what brand would you suggest

I normally stretch for 6 months at a time with no problems...this shedding has made things worse to the point i don't want to put anything in my hair for fear of matting and knots...

It is thick, inexpensive and it works great. Put your hair in a style in which you do not have to style it for at least 3 days until the next deep conditioning treatment. Once you complete the 10 day deep conditioning moisturizing treatment (should you choose to try this) then because you are stressed about your hair, I would put it in a style that requires no daily manipulation. The best thing you can do is to stop stressing, because stress makes it worst. I would also recommend Qhmet Biologics soft bush gel and their conditioners their products are great for transitioners. You must order their products online, though. I also recommend shea moisture. Blessings!!!!!!

PS: feel free to inbox me if you have any questions, I am always willing to help. But I may not check back with all threads sometimes I miss some posts.

If her hair is shedding, not breaking, this wont be much help. 

You can try garlic supplements to stop the shedding. I also read somewhere that placenta (in capsule form) can help with the postpartum body changes. 
If all else fails, I agree with Yaya, cut it off and come over to the natural sideEvil Smile

Bumping.

I am thinking it is mostly due to post-partum hormone fluctuations.  Are there bulbs on the ends of the hairs (ie: are you seeing more breakage vs shedding?)

I concur with the advise that swift provided you with.
 
You also mentioned that the shedding may be attributed to post partum...how long ago did you have your bundle of joy?  ARe you taking any multivitamins?  This may aid in the shedding as well.
