Bryce lost his first tooth today he is 6, we do not know where it was lost, so this means nothing under the pillow. I told him that the tooth fairy will still come. What should the tooth fairy leave?

my son has lost all of his teeth that have fallen out, and i mean all of them he swallowed 2 had one knocked out in the playground (by accident) and all the rest playing with them after being asked to put them in the litle bag under his pillow and not listening. he is now 11 and no more will come out and has come to terms with the fact that all he has ever gotten and will ever get from the tooth fairy is notes saying how sorry she was she couldn't pay him all those years. he wasn't even more carefull when he see his sisters were being left money for their teeth. i think i felt worse about it than he did bless him. x

Thanks to all of you that responded. I left a note for the tooth fairy with Bryces help and she left 2 dollars.   We have such a happy boy.

hi, my daughter swallowed her first tooth!! in order to overcome this drama in my daughters life we told her that the tooth fairy has a special x-ray machine & she could see the tooth in her tummy. she loved this & found it very funny. we also left a note to the tooth fairy explaining what the heck happened to the tooth. We live in England & in our house the toothfairy leave 1-2 pounds per tooth. maybe 2-3 pounds for the front teeth. the tooth fairy always leaves a little note about how clever & clean the tooth was & keep up the good work. I dont see wny we cant let the kids have fun & indulge with a little but of fantasty & imagination. I thinks its sweet & they dont stay young to enjoy this for long. x

We had to deal with this recently. Not once, but twice! The first time, she lost her tooth in the car, and was told to put it in my purse. I never ever saw it, but the "tooth fairy" somehow left a dollar in my purse.



The second time, she last her tooth as she was brushing her teeth. It fell down the drain. Ms. Fairy left a dollar in the sink.



I agree with a dollar per tooth. The one exception was when she had a tooth that had been loose for three months, but was also being stubborn. We had to pull it out and it was really hard for her. The "tooth fairy" left $5 that time.

a cute note saying that she found his tooth and then whatever you deem appropriate. we leave small amounts of money some leave gifts. but the note is a good touch so he knows that even if the tooth gets lost of even swallowed she'll still come.

I leave a dollar. I'm not into the $5 for this tooth, $10 for that tooth thing. I have some friends who leave $25 for molars. My seven year old has lost 6 teeth in the last two years. Two of them he lost (after they fell out of his mouth), one was his brother's fault. They were playing with them, even though they were put in the "tooth" box. My rule (or the tooth fairy's rule) is No Tooth, No Money. He doesn't play with them anymore. I know the first one is special. . .the tooth fairy could leave a note along with whatever else you decide to leave.
