Strange new eating habit...

My 2 and a half year old developed a new eating habit that is driving me and daddy CRAZY! she will take a bite of food and chew chew chew chew chew chew chew.. for about five minutes.. just about the time the food becomes VERY gross and slimey,. then she spits it all over the floor.. last night i noticed her doing it and told her to swollow it, she attempted then threw it up... has this happened to anyone else? any ideas why she is doing this? should i bring her to the doctor?

  • Is she still teething? What are you feeding her?

  • i thought she was done teething but i will double check with her dentist. She had been doing it with everything she eats.. mashed potatoes, scrambled eggs, and this morning a banana.

  • Does she possibly have a cold? She could have phlegm in her throat that is making it hard to swallow.
