Are you new to the Tooth Fairy Business? Losing a tooth is one of those sort-of-scary-but-exciting times your child will never forget! The basic Tooth Fairy tradition involves a child leaving a tooth under their pillow at bedtime so the Tooth Fairy can visit during the night and take the tooth, leaving money under the pillow in exchange.
The amount of money the Tooth Fairy pays per tooth is entirely up to you as the Tooth Fairy. Tooth Fairies should keep in mind that children will lose 20 baby teeth in their lifetime (so you may not want to set the bar high by leaving a $20 bill the first time your child loses a tooth). Most parents agree that $1 per tooth is a fair exchange rate that keeps parents (ahem, I mean Tooth Fairies) and kids happy without breaking the bank.
Baby teeth are tiny and easy to lose…sometimes even before they have the chance to make it under your child’s pillow. And even Tooth Fairies can have a hard time feeling around in the dark, trying to locate the tooth under the pillow without waking the child. That’s why a Tooth Fairy Pillow or Tooth Fairy Box can come in handy! Your child puts their tooth inside a small pillow or box, which makes it is a lot easier for the Tooth Fairy to find it.
