•G Tube feeding during day and night?!

Kimberly - posted on 12/15/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




My little Boy just had the G tube put in back in August he aspirates on liquids and just recently we found out that he aspirates on his baby food too so they wanted me to start his Nutren Jr for his feedings during the day! I think it's a little too much for his tummy right now bc I just started yesterday with it and feed him every 3 hours because I have to give it to him 5x a day a long with water and I know his little belly can't handle it bc last night he woke up maybe every 2-3 hours gagging and puking it up! He is on a continuous feed at night with Nutren Jr also!! Any advice ladies?! Has your child done this before?! It's Saturday so I can't get a hold of his Nutritionist and see if it would be better if I could decrease it a little!

I know you posted this a few days ago, so I'm hoping you were able to get ahold of the doc and adjust your little ones tube feeding. I don't have any experience with little ones with TF, so I can't really help you any. I do have a friend who has a little girl who just celebrated her 3year anniversary of her G tube (I say celebrate, because this amazing little girl wouldn't be alive if it weren't for her G tube) and I know she has been able to get a tremendous amount of support from some facebook groups. I would truely recommend doing some research and finding groups either on facebook or in your local area, so you have other moms with experience that can help you out and give you suggestions.
