My oldest is about to lose her first tooth (!!!) and I have no idea what the going rate is, haha...

How much do you usually give for the first tooth? What about subsequent teeth?

i think they got 5 for the first. then 2 after.

ava just lost another tooth the other day, and she already had one she was saving from daniels last hitch (she wanted to show him before she put it under her pillow, and he was gone almost 3 wks). she got $4 for them last night. (the tooth fairy kinda forgot on saturday night).

when I was a kid it was a dollar per tooth.

if I'm counting inflation, I'm taking taxes, so my kids better be happy with their dollar ;)

That's what I was thinking...

When I was growing up I got between 50 cents and $1 per tooth.

Dh does tooth fairy. Ds just got a $50 game stop gift card. That is why dh is on an allowance.

I know someone who gives TWENTY bucks a tooth.

We give 2-3. And when she loses her molars it will probably be more for those. She got $5 for the first

$1.00 but I'm a single mom with 4 kids who were losing teeth all at the same time!

Maybe once the 4yo starts losing them she will bump it up?
