My daughter is 9 months old and has had her g-tube since she was 2 weeks old. We had no problems until she went into the hospital for an unrealted surgury. While in the hosptial they replaced her old g-tube with a "mini one" AMT. It is so loose but the surgeon assures me it is the right size. Now we have ALOT of problems with leaking. Sometimes it is so bad I'm afraid all her medications are leaking right out. Her clothes are wet, her bed is wet. It's miserable. The doctors have told us to keep the site, clean, dry, and well packed with gauze to have a tight fit. This seems to work some days but not others. And now I think it might be getting infected. Any suggestions for stopping the leaking?
