But, The Peppa pig tooth fairy episode eases the pain of my child as he loved to watch and follow steps. It is such a memorable moment for me. From birth, Babies begin to have and love their cute baby tooth. The baby teeth start to fall from age 5 years. To make space for permanent teeth to come in. This is just the age it starts; it can delay for a year or two.
