For teeth?  My son lost his first tooth today!


Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field, since the payment is pure love.  ~Mildred B. Vermont

I would start low so you can increase it as he gets older and for molars. I always started at $0.25.

I give $1 per tooth. Except my sons front four. I gave him $15 each for those because his cousin knocked them out of his face....

For my dd's first tooth she got $20, only because it had to be pulled.  After that she receives anywhere between $2 - $5, it just depends on how much cash I have on hand,lol

$3 plus stickers for the first tooth and we only had a $5 for the second.....  we use gold coins usually but the second loss occured on vacation so it got expensive.

We've always done $5 after asking around to parents of her friends. I don't know anyone irl who does less than $5.
