Loose kid's tooth-did you pull it out?

I ​did, because my son felt uncomfortable. I do not know why but I am always afraid he can swallow it. Before I did it I checked if it's really-really loose, because I did not want to damage my son's gums. I used a clean damp gauze pad to firmly tug on the tooth to remove it. If the tooth didn't come out immediately, I just left it alone.

      I either leave it alone or pull it, usually on the sly because they get themselves so worked up about it being pulled. Or have had one or two ask me to pull it because it was irritating them so much just waiting! And it has to be ready or I'd tell them no.
