Cutting the Mealtime Cord

Question

Hello!

Our second and youngest daughter is going on three in a month. I am wondering about realistic expectations at the dinner table for her; especially if she is able to eat herself and can sit on a chair for those 20 minutes of dinner.

What happens now is that I basically need to feed her each spoon for her to eat. I do that because otherwise I see she is not eating but talking a whole lot :) Sitting on her chair is also not going particularly well as she stands on her chair or gets off it and I need to remind her again and again.

She in light of what I have just described, I would appreciate your feedback so much on what I can expect from her and advice on how to handle this situation better so dinner can be more relaxed.

Thank you
