Who's child has lost a tooth before the age of 6?

How old were they if before the age of 6? My daughter will be 6 next month and she lost her first tooth 3 days before christmas so she was a little over 5.5 and then she lost her 2nd tooth last night and has another one loose she has lost 2 teeth before the age of 6. I didn't think they start loosing their teeth until at least 6 or 7. She started teething at 3.5 months, but it didn't finally come in until 6 months.

  • My son turned 5 in October and lost 2 teeth about a month later. His adult ones were browing in front of the baby ones before they fell out :-/ Dentist said it is strange, but nothing to worry about.

  • My older son lost his first a month or so before he turned 6. My middle daughter, though, lost her first one just after turning 5 1/2. Her 2nd one came out a couple months later. By the time she turned 6 she had lost 2 or 3 and had 1 or 2 more loose ones. And she didn't get her first tooth until after she turned 1.

  • Oldest started earliest, she lost 2 before she turned 5. Not sure of her current count at 9yo. 2nd started at 5, and she's lost more than the 9yo - she'll be 8 in May. 3rd has lost 4 and she'll be 6 this summer.

  • My son lost two teeth naturally and two teeth through accidents before six. He had his first teeth in at 4 1/2 months old.

  • My kids are on the late side losing teeth (my daughter is almost seven and still has all her baby teeth- she is very upset about this fact!) But most of their friends lost teeth before they were six.
