My daughter has a tooth growing behind her baby tooth which is now loose.  Will it shift on it's own?  Does anyone have experience with this? I know she needs to go to the dentist, but I'm concerned and hoping I get some reassurance.

My daughter just went threw this.  Went to dentist, dentist numbed her and pulled they baby teeth out.  She didnt fight or fuss.  But I was up front with her that it was going to hurt a little and that if she wanted to cry she could but she couldnt fight.  It had to be done.  

She left the denist office and went straight back to school.  Not even a wimper from her.  I was so proud!

Aww, brave girl!  I wonder if this would be neccesary for my daughter since her tooth is about to fall off.

If its now loose, then it should pop out soon enough and you woudln't ahve to worry about it.  The new tooth should push the old one out.  If its painful or isnt' getting any looser, though, you may want to see your pediatric dentist.

I would hope not.  Since the tooth is already loose, that's a good sign.
