DD just turned five and her two bottom front teeth have her adult teeth trying to come up behind the baby teeth. One baby tooth is the slightest bit loose, the other one not at all. 

I'm seeing and getting such conflicting advice on whether to have the baby teeth pulled so her adult teeth can come in without problems. 

I tend to be more natural about things wanting them to happen on their own but I don't want to mess up her teeth by waiting either. She seems so young for this to be happening too. 

Has anyone had this in their kids and what did you do about it? Any advice?

I've had one where the teeth were really loose and the adult teeth coming in behind the actually tightened them up because they got wedged in. Those puppies needed to be pulled. And one of mine had his adult teeth "push" the baby teeth out. I think you have some time to wait and see if they loosen a bit; you probably don't want to wait until they are fully in though.
