How old was your child when they had their first loose tooth?

My son is 5 (6 in May) and just discovered his top front right tooth is wiggly.
He is very excited!

DD will be 7 next week and no loose teeth yet.  She may be a late bloomer like me though which i hope not.

My oldest was 5 and lost 8 teeth in about 7 months....it was crazy.

Middle was 6

Youngest is 5 and has one that has been loose for a few weeks now.

My dd forced one of her teeth out at 4, now she will never have a tooth there :/ the first one that actually had a tooth behind it was at 6

blank stareWhy won't she ever have a tooth there?  Forcing your "baby" teeth out early doesn't prevent your "adult" teeth from coming in.  You just have to wait longer for the permanent teeth than you would have if the tooth fell out when it was ready.

My dd lost her first tooth at 5 1/2.  She just turned 6 and she's lost 3 teeth so far.

Why not? My dd "lost" her first tooth at 21 months and her dentist says it will grow in eventually.
My son will be 6 in June and has not lost a tooth yet.

DD had her first two loose teeth at age 4. She was a VERY early teether. She has lost 7 teeth at age 6.5 and has her 8th tooth on its way out.
