Re: 2yo slooooooow eater

My oldest goes through phases of sometimes being a slow eater. It doesn't bother me too much, because I am a slow eater too. I could easily take 40 minutes to eat a meal, especially if it is as a family and I am talking and interacting with DH and the kids.

It drive my husband nuts though since he will finish eating in 10 minutes or less.

The only time we set any sort of time restriction is if we are getting ready to go somewhere or do something that requires them to be done eating. Usually he will speed up a little bit when he knows he only has so much time.

We have set a timer before, but he hates it and will then cry at the dinner table. I don't want to create a situation where meal time is a battle, so for the most part we just go with it.
