Tube Feeding

Some of our kids will not eat what they need by mouth, so tube feeding will be something to deal with. Whether it's through a G-tube or NG-tube, there are some tricks we've found that might be useful.

When they have blanket sleepers, you can make a button hole in the PJs and run the tubing out of the hole, that way they can still stay warm. You can place the hole near the feet if you are worried about them getting tangled in the tubing.

Use LOTS of tape, kids seem to be able to find anyway to take connections apart! We don't want to feed the bed (although I'm sure a lot of us have anyway!)
