Shedding Bunny! Help

So my bunny is shedding like crazy! I have no idea what to do....should I give him a bath take him to the groomers, or just leave him alone. I usually let him go out in my room for some free time but if I do that now i end up picking up a bunches of hair. I only give him a bath when necessary which is almost never so I don't think that's the problem. I know he is molting but what should I do to stop it or at least stop it from coming out that much. I searched up on Google but it wasn't so helpful so i had to turn to experts! Help me please!!!

Hi, that's called molting and is totally normal .

No need to bathe him, just brush him every day. Also give him a cube of dried papaya or pineapple regularly if you can...it'll prevent hairballs from him ingesting extra fur.

Thanks, I ran out and got dried pineapple I knew he was shedding but I wasn't sure whether I should have given him a bath. I brushed him a few times today and lots of fur came out. Thanks for the advice!
