new parent eating poll

You and your beloved partner have just finished preparing a hot meal that requires two hands for eating. You also have a baby. At the moment, the baby is in no mood to lay happily in her swing or play blanket... she wants to be held. Otherwise, she'd going to yell. So you'll have to eat in shifts.

What would you rather do first?

Hold the baby. Be patient for 20 minutes, then savor your food.
Eat. The food is hot but the starving partner next to you makes you feel pressured to finish FAST.

The dozens of in-between options and ways around this situation can be covered in comments, I'm sure :)
