Do anybody have a baby with a G Tube
Iridescent - posted on 03/29/2012
I have 2 kids with g-tubes. One got hers placed at 8 months old and was on continuous feeds for a long time, then was on continuous overnight and oral during the day, plus meds, then continuous when hot out or ill. Now she's on meds and bolus by day through the tube, all other intake is oral, and off night feeds. She's 4 now. Our son got his placed at 3 years old and is on bolus feeds 4-5x/day by pump over 1 hour through the day, or split into 8-10 bolus feeds by syringe through the day. We prefer the syringe method because his pump malfunctions so often. His pulmonologist wants him on continuous night feeds or 24 hour continuous feeds, but GI and we do not want it unless absolutely necessary. He's 5 now. What do you need help with?
