I know it varies, but how many teeth have your LOs lost and at what ages?

DD is 9 and has only lost 4 (it was 2 until a couple of months ago) and DS is 7.75 and has lost 3. They got their teeth really late, though. DD only had 2 teeth @15 months and DS had 2 @ 13 months.

Thanks.

My kids starting losing teeth at about 7yo. My 8.5yo has only lost 4 teeth so far.

New signature, same old me: Ann- mama of 2 boys and 2 girls, partnered to a fabulous man.

I lost my first one at 8.5, and my last one at 14!

My mom teaches kindegarden and the 5-6yr olds loose a lot of teeth, I think most kids start around then.

My five year old lost two teeth this summer. This is three months before she will be 6yo.


My two eight year olds I think have lost eight teeth. They were crazy toothless at 7yo. I think dd had four gaps across all at once last year! It looked extreme. They stared a little later than their agemates, nearly 7yo, but then they went fast.

The 5yo I think is a little earlier than average.

That was me too. All through 8th grade, my top 2 canines were missing - took 10 months for them to grow in!

That's what I've been seeing. DD's cousin is 6 weeks younger and had lost 9 teeth by age 8.

Also, DD's 6-year molars just came in.

My 5 yr old (6 on Halloween this year) lost his two lower middle incisors within two weeks of each other back in Mar/Apr. One of his uppers is loose now.
