Seems so young. It is very wobbly and he is desperate for it to come out. He is worried he will swallow it tonight and not get any money, but in the next breath tells me there is no such thing as the tooth fairy.

Aw, do you think he is a bit scared of the idea of the tooth fairy?

DS1 didn't tell us when his first tooth came out, and then wondered why there was no money under his pillow...

Well, the tooth is still in situ...

how old is he??
my dd1 is 7 and a half and not a wobble in sight. She is gutted cause all her friends are losing teeth like it's going out of fashion lol

He will be 7 in March. It is one of the bottom middle and two new ones are coming through already.

Dslost first bottom tooth around the same age. He has also lost his top 2 about 6 months ago.. still no sign of the adult front 2 tho so he has a gorgeaus gappy grin grin

Also happy as it meant when he was choosing instruments at school he is not able to play trombone due to lack of front teeth grin grin

Blimey, my ds has just turned five in August and he has a wobbly bottom tooth! I did think it might be a bit early - obviously it is! It's such a milestone isn't it, I was really taken aback to find it was wobbly...a real sign of growing up! Hope your ds manages to get rid of his NAB. He might not believe in the tooth fairy but he will take the money and run wink

ds believes in toothfairy still. The last tooth he lost he left a note for her asking her not to take his tooth (thinks it is far more precious than £2)

My dd lost her first tooth at 5, as did several others in her reception class. Ds, almost 7, is about the only one in his year 2 class that hasn't lost a tooth yet - and he's deperate!

I always thought that 5 was really early, but it seems most of dc's peers start to lose them aged about 5.5-6, so maybe ds at almost 7 is late rather than dd being early! I don't know - in any case I hope he loses a few quite soon, cos I'm not sure how long he will go along with the tooth fairy myth...

ds lost his first tooth at 5 and then lost the one next to it within weeks

i thought this was early at the time but it has only been a couple of months and is big teeth are already coming through in the gap!!

IT IS OUT!!! He came running out of school and I knew he was going to tell me something. It came out while he was eating his blueberry and strawberry muffin at lunch time and he nearly swallowed it! Seems very happy.

It is such a milestone isn't it?

DS lost his fourth yesterday. Both front top ones gone now so looks really funny.

Number 2 tooth is so close to coming out and DS1 has just been in tears as he wants it out, but isn't prepared to eat or drink anything to try and get it out. Hardly had any lunch as was too scared to eat.

dd lost her bottom two just before she turned 6.

My ds has just lost his first tooth, he was 6 in July. He is practically the last child to loose a tocth in his class. Some of them had already lost one or two before starting reception.

His wasn't wobbly at all but he was desperate for one to come out. I gave him a couple of Percy Pig sweets from M&S and the tooth got stuck to one and just came out blush He was chuffed to bits though.

Number 2 out this morning. Costing me a fortune in tooth fairy fees. grin

Ds1 is 6.3 and has lost the front 4 teeth - I cried and cried when the first one came out, seemed such an irrevocable milestone - a real 'growing up' and an end to babyhood.

my dd has just lost 5 teeth in a few weeks, including her top front teeth. she's almost 5.5!

i think it makes her look older, in a way. sad it's odd losing the top ones ahead of her peers.

HonoriaGlossop Tue 25-Sep-07 13:55:59

tortoise, EXACTLY. I've been trying to work out why I've been feeling so weird about this happening to ds. I didn't feel ready for this, I know it's only teeth! But you're right, it's the clear end of the early, baby time.

It's going so fast shock

chipkid Tue 25-Sep-07 14:00:25

My ds now 6 came home from school in a murderous mood the other day and told me in an accusatory voice that he was the only one in his class who had not lost a tooth. How that is my fault I am still trying to fathom!

HonoriaGlossop Tue 25-Sep-07 14:01:48

He's blaming you for bad tooth genes grin

chipkid Tue 25-Sep-07 14:02:36

HG I was 15 when I lost my last two milk teeth so he probably has a point!

HonoriaGlossop Tue 25-Sep-07 14:10:18

blimey chipkid, you hold on to 'em in your family, don't you!

My son's 2 second teeth were coming through before the baby teeth were even loose.
