Sorry for the two posts basically right in a row. I wrote a few weeks back about my son's new tooth coming in behind his baby tooth. Well, the baby tooth is finally loose. Not just loose... it is hagning by a thread. What to do? I am not usually squeamish at all, but I think I will faint if I hear a crack or crunch lol. Can I just pull it (you can literally bend it all the way over at this point) or wait for it to just come out on its own. ICKY!

If it's just basically hanging there, I'd get a tissue and give it a twist. It'll come right out! Make sure that you've got some warm salt water and have him swish his mouth out for a few minutes because it'll help stop the bleeding.

Ahhh... I didn't have a chance to get to it (YAY!)... it came out on its own. Whew! Guess I better get used to it, though... there's more where that came from lol. I don't know why that just makes me feel like fainting!

Steph... thanks. We did the warm water swish when it came out, even though there didn't seem to be any bleeding. It doesn't seem to be bothering him at all, so that's good. His friend from preschool, who is also in his kindy cla__s, also lost a tooth today lol!

When my son had his first tooth loose,he asked me to wiggy it. I declined real fast. I said "Yuck I am not wigging your tooth gross." I get the geeve jeevies think ing about it lol. Glad it came out it's own. I know how you feel about teeth.

Haha Sahmof3 - my 11 year old freaked over this same thing last night!!! Yes he's 11 and had a tooth hanging by a thread and wouldn't pull it out or let anyone else do it...He'd far rather act a twit and walk around with his mouth hanging open....Finally asked him if he was really prepared to go out with his mates like that or simply use a tissue to give it a wee tug...2 seconds later and it was gone....Then I had to contend with him wanting something from the tooth fairy - 'Or I'll tell my wee sister and brother the truth!' - wee b***!!! lol!
