I am not sure where to even begin. My 2.8 year old has always been a good eater and even when she doesn't want to try something if I tell her she has to take at least one bite she will (and with minimal fuss). The issue I have run into within this last week and a half is that she will take a bite of whatever and then leave it in her mouth for several minutes (even over 10 minutes). She will sometimes drink with it in her mouth and manage to swallow the liquid but not the liquified food. She will also talk with it in her mouth, somehow holding it under her tongue. I have no clue how to start attacking this issue because I have no idea why she is doing it. I thought that maybe she was not really hungry but when she would finally swallow it she would say that she was not done eating and still sit there eating slowly. Is this common? Any idea why she does this or what I should do to deal with it?
