My daughter done exactly the same thing - her top tooth was loose forever and she just wouldnt do anything with it. We encouraged her to brush her teeth super regularly and after each brush we told her to wiggle. The nagging eventually worked lol and she started wiggling after literally months of encouragement. Witihin a day or two it had fallen out - she was the happiest little thing, especially when the tooth fairy accepted a picture of her tooth as she had lost it when it fell out at school. Dont worry and good luck on the wiggling.

dont pull it out, if the new tooth comes in, it will just push it out (thats why its loose) if you pull it too soon, it will bleed.. trust me ... i know..... i made that mistake... lol my son wouldnt talk to me for the rest of the day - i had to bribe him with ice pops! lol

Did you let your mom pull your teeth out when you were a child?? I know I didn't... maybe you should just leave it alone. It will fall out when it is ready.

You might try putting her in front of a mirror and letting her wiggle it herself
