loose tooth

JP has a loose tooth. It is his first, and while he is super excited about a visit from the tooth fairy, he is terrified of having it pulled! His new tooth is beginning to push through behind it, so it really needs to come out.

I have tried to make it a fun game. We sing a "wiggle it" song and I wiggle it (pretty hard) front to back and then side to side. And then around in circles. It has yet to come out. I am really trying to avoid YANKING it out and really freaking him out. Any suggestions? If we go another day or two and it still hasn't popped out, I may have to jerk it out and deal with the aftermath.

This is our first experience with this, so I welcome ANY ideas or suggestions...

Wiggle, wiggle,wiggle!!!Will he eat an apple? Also, you can get a better grip w/ wash cloth or piece of gauze!!! Good luck!! Trust me, one day he'll be glad to wiggle just to get the tooth fairy to come ! At least KG was like that!! Janet
