When did your child lose his/her first tooth?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
My oldest (now eleven) lost her first tooth at four and a half. My son is six and a half and nothing is even loose in there. What about your kids?

Joe'll be 6 in Feb & he has a loose bottom tooth. (But he tried to take a cap off a bottle of Gatorade with his MOUTH so that could have sped up the process!)

Ds was 2 months from his birthday. He was 5 and lost it on Martin Luther King day. He has lost his front top and front bottom teeth so far. Funny thing is, ds loses one and dd gets one. Although she only has 3 teeth right now. :LOL

For a cute story about the tooth fairy, I told ds that the tooth fairy takes all the lost teeth and puts them in babies mouths so they can have teeth and that is why they are called baby teeth. :LOL

My son lost his 1st tooth a few weeks after he turned 5!

It's nice to hear that my daughter is not the only late bloomer for teeth falling out. She is going to be 7 in March and none of her teeth are loose. It's very frustrating to her because ALL of her friends (including 5 year old friends) are missing their teeth. Poor kid.

No one in my family loses teeth until they are eight. Hollis will be 9 in two weeks and he has only lost four teeth (three bottom one top), with a couple more that are loose. I didn't lose my first tooth until 3rd grade and neither did my mom. My daughter will be 7 in March and has no loose teeth. Perfectly normal.

Mine will be six in three weeks and shows no sign of losing any teeth soon!

I was a late bloomer so she must take after me.

Dss was 8 in 3rd grade when he lost his first tooth. The sad thing is that kindergarten/1st grade classes often have lost tooth charts to keep track of who's losing teeth. Poor guy. He's lost a bunch by now (9).

DD will be six in a month and doesn't even have a wiggly tooth. Her first tooth came in right before she turned 9 months, so I knew they would be on the late side, but she is *really* anxious to loose one--- it's been a long year of waiting.

My ds is almost 6.5 and has one bottom tooth that is barely loose. I won't be surprised if he makes it to seven with all his baby teeth.

My dd is 5 and lost her bottom front tooth in October.Now she says the second bottom front tooth is loose. I was hoping it would be a few more years before she lost any!
She was awful cute though with that missing tooth
