Im not doubting what you are saying for all I know you may totally right I just dont understand why my 6 year old has all her teeth when the little one doesnt. Wouldnt baby teeth have to fall out before adult teeth come in?
I'm treating this just like I did when she was baby except for the orajel she hates that stuff and wont use it but the Tylenol made her mouth stop hurting.
I'm a little confused, but if you count and your 5 yr old has 20 teeth, she isn't missing any. Your 6 yr old may have gotten her 6 yr molars, which is why she has more teeth. And no, you don't lose baby teeth in order to get your permanent molars. Sorry if I'm misunderstanding, but just count her teeth to see if there's less than 20.
