When did your dc's start losing their baby teeth?

Just out of interest, really. Most of dd's friends of the same age (6) have already lost at least one of their baby teeth, but dd's show no sign yet - none of them are wobbly. She is impatient for the tooth fairy to visit her

Ds1 was 5 when he lost his first tooth.

Ds2 is 6 and hasn't had any wobbly teeth yet.

My DD lost her first tooth a week or so before her 5th birthday. That was very early though. I think most of her class still haven't lost any teeth, (she's in year 1).

I'm trying to think when I lost my teeth - think it was mostly between 6 and 7. One of my front teeth wouldn't come out at all and the dentist had to remove it. It had such a long root that it would never have come out on its own!

I actually know one person who never lost their baby teeth. She must be in her fifties and still has them! That must be v unusual.

dd will be 6 next month and has lost 3 baby teeth and has a fourth wobbly one.

DS lost his about 10 days ago smile. He will be 6 at the end of November.

DD was about 6.5 - she was one of the latest in her class, but not the only one.

DD was the last in her class to lose a baby tooth.

She lost her first one this summer, early August, at 7y4m. In the last two months she has lost 4 - the last two last week.

She is currently very gappy, lol!

DD1 and DS2 where both 7
DS3 who is 5 1/2 has not lost any yet

DS hasn't lost any yet and he has just turned 7. DD was later than most of her friends (can't remember exact age without going to look in old diary!).

dd1 had just turned 6, dd2 was 4.9 years.

WOW that is much earlier than I thought was usual. my DS is 5.6 has no signs of any loose teeth. He did ask me the other day and I said 6 or 7.

stepaway Tue 06-Oct-09 13:32:24

just over 6.5

lentilsRus Tue 06-Oct-09 13:37:56

dd lost her first one a couple of months after her 6th birthday. I was taken by surprise as, for some reason, I thought that they didn't fall out until nearer 7.

ds was 6 last month and has a couple that are very slightly wobbly.

I must have lost my 2 front teeth around 8 as have a school photo of me with them missing! I remember I was still loosing baby teeth well into secondary school. At 32, I still have wisdom teeth coming through!

dd1 is 5 at the end of the month and one of her front bottom teeth is a bit wobbly - says the dentist, can't see it myself
