Lost his first tooth

The day before yesterday he came to me complaining, moving his tooth and it was bleeding, I knew what was happening so I tried to calm him down and press a cloth on it to stop the bleeding. I was later able to distract him after that. Yesterday morning, I noticed that he was missing the tooth and to my surprise he already has the other one lined up behind it! I don't know what he did with the loose tooth, Idk if he swallowed it or threw it, no idea. My almost 6 year old lost his tooth.

My dd is 4.5 & lost 2 teeth. List both in one week. The wiggling didn't affect her but there was a little bleeding with each of them. Pretty sure she swallowed them cause one minute they were there the next they were gone. Asked ped & she said dd would be fine, actually not uncommon for kids w/ sensory issues to swallow them.

That's what I thought, and he didn't seemed bothered by the tooth being loose, just the unexplained bleeding that he dislikes.

My dd. chews on thing a lot more when a tooth is loose. Just like your ds, it only affected her when it bled. She's about to loose another one, always has something in her mouth (normally fingers or her hair).

Lol!!! Redirecting her is useless. Always trying but the second I look away she starts again. Thank god I live in TX & it doesn't get really cold. When she wears long sleeves they are always in her mouth. She likes her chewy but that only lasts for a few mins. Have you found anything that works w/ your son?

Nothing! If he has a t-shirt on, he'll start chewing the edge and work his way up up to the neck line, all of it in his mouth... Or the edge of his jacket or like yours, the sleeves lol nothing works, I bought a chewing toy and everything, nothing works!
