Omgod im fit to crack up with my 2yr old. Hes such a picky eater & has to be distracted to eat. I normally put on his fav tvshow or a dvd & feed him that way. He holds food in his lower lip...i dunno how he does it & could have a conversation still holding this food. Its like a trot ....then he wont fully swallow each mouthful so its like he always has food in his mouth when your trying to get the next spoonful. Ive tried waiting till hes finished one mouthful but id be there all day. The last mouthful he nvr swallows....hes actually bested me &held it for 4hrs one day. Thing is he never knows when its the last spoonful coz i dont show him the plate. This is getting beyond frustrating at this point &i dont want to be making a thing about food with him as i dont want to be stressing him out or upsetting him. Any advice??

Stop 'distracting' him with the television. Its not helping your cause. Other than that, typical of the age. Don't make a big deal of it. He gets no sweets until dinner is done, and that should be incentive enough.

Good luck.
