So I'm sure this topic has been covered a lot but seriously my 4 yr. old is driving me crazy!! Every meal takes her an hour or more to eat and she usually won't feed herself without constant prompting... 'pick up your fork', 'take another bite', etc. And sometimes we end up just picking up the fork/spoon ourselves and putting the bite in her mouth. My husband and I are at our wits end, please is there anything that works with your child? How long do you make them stay at the table and what do meals generally consist of? Our daughter's 4 yrs. old and just now got over 30 lbs. so I'm concerned that she won't get enough to eat if we just leave it up to her. Though we've heard over and over that a child won't starve themselves I'm not sure that pertains to our daughter. I think she would become a skeleton and wind up in the hospital if we didn't make her eat.
