will not swollow food Lock Rss

my 24 month old boy will happily open his mouth
to be fed but will not swollow straight away. He just
holds his food in his mouth without chewing. I try to distract him with toys or make him talk so that he can swollow. He has been doing this since he was 18 months old.
Hi, my son 20 months does exactly the same thing...with almost everything apart from those new microwave pasta things...he gulps them down...cheeky little bugger.
I think that Jai has been doing it for about 6 months or more and I am putting it down to the fact he is just seeing if he can get away with not eating it or alternatively he isnt really that hungry...guess its a phase they go through...some kids do this, some do that....ours dont swallow their food striaght away...at least he doesnt spit it out after!!!

I wouldnt worry to much, I think that as long as he is eating then just try and distract him and get the mealtime done with.

Take care
Em

Mum to Jai and Chase!
