Hi Im new to the group, I have 2 boys 10 1/2 months apart, they are both 5 now. :)
My youngest just turned 5 a month ago, he has lost 4 teeth already, and another one is loose. Is this normal, or not? Hubby and I are concerned something is wrong......thanks

Did he get his teeth early?  My 6 year old just lost his first tooth last week.  He didn't get his first tooth until he was almost a year.

My oldest started losing his teeth at 5 too he is 7 now and has lost 8 so far. As long as you see adult teeth coming in I think its fine but if you are really concerned maybe take him to the dentist for a check up.

Welcome!  Glad to see you here!  I think that could be normal.  Each child will lose teeth at his or her own pace.  If you're worried about it, you could visit the dentist just for reassurance, and a reminder to keep brushing those new teeth!
