When did your kids lose their baby teeth?

My son is 5 and his front tooth is loose. I'm not sure if it's time for him to start losing teeth or if maybe he knocked it a good one.

  • Both of my boys were 6 years, 2 months when they lost their first baby teeth. My 8 1/2 year old has lost a total of 8 teeth, and my 6 1/2 year old has only lost 2 so far.

  • DD was 5. DS is 5 but hasn't gotten any loose teeth yet. Visit for more info on what's normal for losing teeth. Your kid will like it too.
