She : She can keep wiggling it with her fingers. Some of our little patients also have been encouraged to eat more thjan their share of apples. Not cut up, bite into them & have had some success in speeding up the process. But sometimes, you just can't do anything to control mother nature. Have patience, it will happen.

You : You can allow her to wiggle her tooth, she surly feels the amount of pressure to be exerced without any worries. Good luck!

Let : Let her play with it with het tongue, or wiggle it it with her fingers. It probably won't come out until it is good and ready, anyway.
